Portrait about artist, photographer and outdoor swimmer Vivienne Rickman Poole.
Waterlog documents the story of writer Joe Minihane and his battle with anxiety. When anxiety took hold of his life, Joe found wild swimming provided the perfect antidote. He set out to retrace the route of environmentalist Roger Deakin’s nature writing classic, Waterlog.
Joe embarked on his own swimming journey across the UK, capturing his experiences in his own book, Floating. This documentary captures some of this journey and how Joe eventually found relief, not just in the cold water he swam in, but by being open and honest about his own mental health.
