Against the Tides - Film screening and Q&A

Sheffield Doc/Fest will present the World Premiere of Stefan Stuckert's 'Against the Tides' on June 8th at the Showroom Cinema to celebrate our connection to the world's oceans.

The film follows the story of an extraordinary woman, marathon swimmer Beth French, attempting the world’s most extreme swimming challenge. Driven to be a role model for her autistic son, and by her battle with lifelong illness (ME), Beth confronts jellyfish, sharks, wild weather and reluctant skippers. But as her journey unfolds, dangers of the sea prove easier to conquer than upheavals of the heart.
