– part of Stroud Film Festival – a lead-in event
Sunday the 10th February, 4pm
Silent film from the SW Film Archive accompanied by live music by Dom Thompson + Time & Tide by Bristol based Director Isabelle Rose Neill
A film event around the joy, interest and curiosity of going into water, whether cold, wild or in a pool. Why do people do this? Filmmakers have been fascinated by this question over and over again. We have footage from today and all the way back to 1929.
Isobel, director of ‘Time & Tide’ will take part in the Q & A after films.
The evening will also include an update on the ‘Stroud Lido’ project by Jess Mcqail and there will also be an introduction by Dom Thompson to our area’s outdoor swimming clubs.
TIME & TIDE
(Isabelle Rose Neill • Director & DOP, Joshua Embury • Producer & Sound)
Every day of the year – rain or shine, the Clevedon swimmers plunge into the icy waters of the Bristol channel. From 10 to 80 years old, there’s only one rule – no wetsuits! Time & Tide presents a moving and often humorous look at life, death and friendship.
