Tupaq Felber's feature debut Tides on DVD in February

24 January 2019

Set against the backdrop of Southern England's serene waterways, a group of friends gather for a sunny weekend reunion on a narrowboat steered by canal boat novice Jon (Jon Foster). Loaded with booze, the gang - Jon, Red (Robyn Isaac), Zooby (Jamie Zubairi) and Simon (Simon Meacock) - swiftly revert to their playful youth. The four unwind, taking in the lush surroundings and sharing banter like the old days. But what soon becomes apparent is that something unspoken is bubbling beneath the surface...

Subtle, honest and packed with humour, Tides is the arresting debut feature of Tupaq Felber, which premiered at London Film Festival in 2017. Shot in black and white in real time over a few days and loosely scripted in a collaborative effort with the cast, Felber's unique, naturalistic approach brings a refreshing edge to British film, and with Tides creates a visually striking and truthful observation on love, loss and friendship.

Described by The Guardian as "a gentle, charming study of loneliness," and Little White Lies as "an unapologetically genuine portrait of companionship that boldly abandons cinematic convention, Tides will be released on UK DVD on 11 February 2019 by AX1 Films at the RRP of £12.99.

Special features:

  • Q&A with director, co-writer and editor Tupaq Felber and cast members Jon Foster, Robyn Isaac and Simon Meacock
  • Deleted and extended scenes
  • ‘On the Water’ montage
