Official trailer for the short film Chasing the Sublime, exploring the physicality of long-distance cold water swimming by award winning director Amanda Bluglass.
Why do we put ourselves into the path of discomfort and risk? What drives us to get too cold and too tired, to battle with fear, in the name of adventure? Follow the originators of The Outdoor Swimming Society, ‘swim twins’ Kate Rew and Kari Furre, in this hauntingly beautiful look at the physicality of cold water swimming in the UK, as two friends set out to chase the sublime.
