Synopsis

We're delighted to welcome directors Patrick McLennan and Samuel Smith as well as Nicky Mayhew, co-chair of the Kenwood Ladies' Pond Association, for a Q&A after the screening on 3rd February. Filmmaker and director Zara Balfour will chair the discussion.


In a world of flux and chaos, it is almost a shock to discover some experiences remain natural, unhurried and unchanged. In the middle of London lies Hampstead Heath, 320 hectares of forest and parkland plus three swimming ponds. People swim in them all year round, whatever the weather, just as they did in the time of Keats and Constable. Capturing the beauty of the English seasons, co-directors Patrick McLennan and Samuel Smith filmed the swimmers over 12 months as they laughed, sang, complained, ruminated, philosophised or simply sought respite from all that life threw at them.


We'll be welcoming back directors Patrick McLennan and Samuel Smith as well as writer Caitlin Daviesfor the screening on 10th February. Dr Julia Wagner will moderate.


Directors Patrick McLennan and Samuel Smith will also be joining us for the screening on 24th February.
