A film about the nature of the Caribbean Islands of the Kingdom of the Netherlands from the makers of The New Wilderness

About the film

The cinema film Wow! showcases the incredible beauty, wondrous ecosystems, fragility and resilience of nature on and around the Dutch Kingdom’s six Caribbean islands; Aruba, Curaçao, Bonaire, Saba, Sint Eustatius and Sint Maarten. We take you on a journey to tropical rainforests, active volcanoes, playing dolphins, stately flamingos, steep cliffs, indescribably beautiful corals and unique flora and fauna. Let yourself be carried away in wonder, inspiration and connection between people and nature. Then the conclusion is that only 1 word fits this film; WOW!

For the next three years, intensive filming will be done on the islands so that we can launch the film in cinemas in 2025. Can’t wait that long? Like our Facebook and Instagram page now and don’t miss out on all the beautiful things we will be filming in the coming years!
