Planning an event?
I am the Director & Co-producer of Against The Tides, an award-winning feature documentary about British marathon swimmer and world record holder Beth French. The film follows Beth's extraordinary journey to swim across seven of the world's most dangerous sea-channels – an extreme challenge called Oceans Seven – and do it in record time: within one year.
Driven by her desire to set an example for her autistic son and to overcome a life-long, debilitating illness, Beth travels to far-flung corners of the world confronting hypothermia, sharks, jellyfish, wild weather and her own inner demons.
But, in an unpredictable and emotional climax, Beth’s yearning to conquer the open sea comes into heart-rending conflict with a mother’s dreams for her son.
