In Detail

‘Vindication Swim’ depicts Mercedes’ (Kirsten Callaghan) upstream struggle in overcoming both the cold waters of the English Channel and the oppressive society of 1920s England. However, after a rival comes forward claiming to have accomplished the same feat, Mercedes is forced into battle to retain her record and her legacy.

Callaghan trained for months in the English Channel before filming began in East Sussex, and the cast includes John Locke (‘Darkest Hour’, ‘Poor Things’, ‘The Favourite’) alongside James Wilby (‘Gosford Park’, ‘Howards End’) and Douglas Hodge (‘Joker’, ‘Black Mirror’).

We are delighted to welcome filmmakers Simon and Elliott Hasler for a Q&A after Friday's (12 Apr) screening.
