Nick Thomas and Sophie Bates are artists based in Rotterdam, and are both members of WET film. They have previously worked together on a radio show, a performance and a quiz, but also maintain solo practices alongside occasional collaborations.

In Nordzee/North Sea, Nick Thomas and Sophie Bates take on the role of roving interviewers on an overnight ferry between the Netherlands and the UK. Passengers on the ferry muse on their journey, daily worries and the role of friendship in their lives, producing a snapshot of a temporary community created by their enforced proximity to one another. The use of the ‘talking heads’ format to create a portrait of a place takes inspiration from examples of interview-films made by Krzysztof Kieślowski, Pier Paulo Pasolini and Sharon Hayes.
