Wistful Wilderness (2010) Trailer
Trailer for Wistful Wilderness, which screened at Hot Docs 2010.
The island Tiengemeten was once reclaimed from the sea and reshaped to provide fertile agricultural land. In the 1990s a decision was made to let the vagaries of nature loose on the island. It took years to make plans, to find alternative land for the farmers and to get the project financed. Digna Sinke followed the changes in the landscape over a period of 13 years, also recollecting the changes in her own life. The signifying theme of the film is temporality and transitoriness.
