FAR TIDES • 25’ • Brussels
Far Tides is a dual portrait of two women from very different backgrounds, who become friends as they navigate together through the depths of their fears. Setareh, afraid of cold deep water since a traumatizing event that took place when she was 18 years old and freshly married to her cousin. Sophie, going through a painful divorce and saying goodbye to her dream home and a decade of memories.
