Water City Bristol - Hidden Tides strand co-curates a series of films about water with Bath film Festival 2016
A series of short films about tides, estuaries and the coastline.
"Estuaries and shorelines hold a deep fascination for us – washed by the tides, they are constantly changing places of climate and light extremes, working to overlapping sets of rhythms and tempos, often alluring and sometimes dangerous".
Guest presenter Professor Owain Jones of the Environmental Humanities Research Centre at Bath Spa University, and prime mover behind the Towards Hydrocitizenship project, has long been enthralled by tides and tidal cultures.
Tonight he introduces and discusses a collection of fascinating short films that explore our relationship with the ebb and flow of arguably the most powerful and transforming natural force on the planet.
