In February 2012 the Baltic region was under the influence of very cold Siberian air masses, causing arctic conditions along the shore of the German Baltic coast with temperatures as low as -30°C for several days. The sea started to freeze and everything seemed to stop somehow.
COLDFRONT is an atmospheric, somewhat experimental and melancholic film trying to reflect that arctic mood and a sense of loneliness and hostility you can feel in that kind of pure and elementary environment.
