Cold Water Club

Ethnographic Research, Video, Community

A film produced after spending two weeks with communities of cold water swimmers. We immersed ourselves in the culture of cold water swimming with the Brighton Sea Swimmers, the Tooting Bec Cold Water Swimming Championships, as well as a London based swim walk group. This video is a result of many hours of interviews and chats with the swimming lovers. We created our own South East London based cold water ritual, inspired by 'The Groyne Spash' discovered in the research process.
