The documentary Walk the Tideline will premiere in Denmark at the CPH:DOX film festival held from 4th of April to 2nd of May.
*Walk the Tideline' follows three beach treasure hunters, “beachcombers”. Through objects found on the beaches, the film creates a portrait of a human. What we leave behind is preserved and spit into the future as a message from the past.

This year the main theme is dedicated to the social, cultural and political changes that shape and change the world right now – and to the possible solutions.
