Walk the Tideline

Meren tuomat


Walk the Tideline follows beachcombers who search our coasts for trash and treasures. Through the objects found on the tideline, the film forms a picture of mankind. The stuff that we leave behind is retained by the sea, then spat out, bringing us messages from bygone times.
