Cold? Uncomfortable? Exhausting? Absolutely. But for Kate Rew and Kari Furre, the founders of The Outdoor Swimming Society, cold water swimming brings life into sharp focus, offering a taste of the sublime.

FILM

Chasing the sublime

UK |  2018  | 13 MINUTES

This film follows the women as they plunge into the darkly beautiful lochs of the UK, overcoming fear and discomfort as they mine the allure of freeform swimming.

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 glimpse at the physicality of UK cold water swimming, as two friends set out to chase the sublime.
