AGAINST THE TIDES

Thursday 18 July: 1230 & 2030

An endurance swimmer attempts to swim the most hostile sea-channels in the world, but as her incredible journey unfolds, dangers of the sea prove easier to conquer than upheavals of the heart.

British marathon swimmer Beth French sets out to conquer Oceans Seven, a challenge consisting of the seven most dangerous sea-channels in the world. For extreme swimmers, it is the ultimate test. Only a handful of people have ever completed it, but Beth aims to become the first person ever to swim all seven in one year.

Driven to set an example for her autistic son and by her battle with a life-long, debilitating illness, Beth travels to far-flung corners of the world confronting jellyfish, sharks, wild weather, hypothermia and mind-numbing fatigue. With each swim Beth gets more determined, but as her dramatic journey nears its end, Beth’s burning desire to conquer the open sea comes into heart-rending conflict with a mother’s dreams for her son.

Inspirational British documentary directed by the BAFTA-nominated and award-winning filmmaker Stefan and produced by BAFTA & EMMY-nominated Nick Read.
