World Premiere at Sheffield for Nick Read feature doc "Against The Tides"
ONE WOMAN. ONE YEAR.
ONE EPIC CHALLENGE.
Beth French is an extraordinary person: an ocean swimmer who was once a Buddhist nun, a single mother who loves adventures and an athlete who suffered from a crippling illness (M.E.) in her youth.
Against The Tides follows Beth on her journey to swim across the seven most dangerous sea-channels in the world, an official challenge called ‘Oceans Seven'. For extreme swimmers it’s the ultimate test; the equivalent to the seven peaks in mountaineering. Only a handful of people have ever completed it, but it took them many years. In October 2016, Beth set out on a historic race to swim all seven in a twelve-month period.
