Adapted from Eduard von Keyserling’s 1911 novel of the same title, Waves depicts both the lives and loves of an aristocratic German family during a summer holiday on the Baltic coast of what is now Lithuania, as well as the twilight of a social order and its mores in a world soon to be plunged into the cataclysm of world war.


Vivian Naefe studied at the University of Television & Film in Munich from 1978-1982. A selection of her films includes: GETTING A LIFE (2003), WAVES (2005), THE WILD CHICKS (2006), WILD CHICKS IN LOVE (2007), THE WILD CHICKS AND LIFE (2009), THE TASTE OF APPLE SEEDS (2013), and numerous TV movies.
