Let's follow Apolline

Apolline, a French-Dutch photographer, starts a journey in her native country. She wanders in the wild nature and explores the sparkling lights of industry. Dazzled by the greatness of humankind and deeply affected by the devastation caused by our civilization, she travels across a land floaded by waters searching for answers. Dreams and reality merge throughout the story. Apolline meets many fascinating characters during her roadtrip, as she is driven by countless questions and moved by the decline of our modern world. She is the very essence of the movie.



Why Rotterdam

In the Netherlands, the fight against raising waters has always needed bold actions, like the Delta Plan, and caused victories and sometimes terrible defeats. The survival of a country is at stake. The visual immersion into these lands threatened by waters, projects us into the very issue of climate change and highlights the struggle for the survival of our Planet Earth.

" Water in Fire " underlines a dramatic and universal issue and let us discover ( or rediscover) a country which is the symbol of our future through the eye of the camera. Apolline shows us the road of industries and lead us into the wild Nature close to  Rotterdam, a very vulnerable city, situated at the lowest spot of the country. We share her fears, questions and hopes in a very intense sensorial experience.
