Derry based film director Alessandro Negrini, who attended the award ceremony said that he is “touched and so glad to see how this little story about a far away river can translate into other people lives, making them think about their lives, and yes, their dreams.”
‘Tides’ , is a dreamlike and visionary portrait of the River Foyle in Northern Ireland, where the story is narrated from the point of view of the river: the river becomes the protagonist, telling us its autobiography.
