Abstract:From the Sahara desert to the big cities of the First World, the documentary film 'The Sea of Silence' narrates the process of desertification in our times, a global phenomenon linked to the process of climate change and the over-exploitation of the land. It is a reflection from the ground up, interlinking four stories that show the efforts of human beings to survive in a hostile environment. In the form of a radio programme showing that absolutely everything comes and goes back to the soil and that there is no spot on this planet that can cope with the rhythm of development and consumerism that we have.
