My Big White Thighs & Me - 25min
"A young(ish) woman has
fallen out of love with her own body. Frustrated, she wishes they didn’t have
to hang out quite so much. Committed to making a change she sets herself the
simple goal of swimming in open water at least once a month for a year. As she
braves the elements throughout the seasons to swim in wild places she also
begins to appreciate the quiet heroism of a female life and it’s body. A story
about womanhood, miscarriage, healing, loving your own skin & freezing your
bum off in cold water. Maybe life is
indeed better when you wear a swimsuit."
The Invincibles - 3min
The Ario Dream - 42min
Renowned filmmaker Paul
Diffley has brought his technical skills to the caving world, with his new film
The Ario Dream. The film profiles the exploration of the deep caves of Ario in
the Picos de Europa mountains, Northern Spain. The film follows the latest
2016/17 expeditions as they try to make the last few connections that could
result in the deepest cave system in Europe.
This is a gripping account of
'expedition-style' cave exploration involving underground camps and complex
logistics, and where the penalties for unforeseen emergencies or problems are
severe. At the apex of the operation are the cave divers, pushing into the
unknown in deep sumps where rescue is not an option. The tension, as each diver
disappears into the blackness, is genuine.
