This looks ace. The film is premiered at a special screening in Cambridge next Monday. More details here.

Martin Strel, the subject of the film (“Martin Strel devours the world’s most dangerous rivers, only stopping for red wine at lunch. The Slovene may not look an athlete, but he is the greatest long-distance swimmer the world has known“) will be a guest at the screening. Here’s a link to a brilliant article on him by Charles Sprawson, himself a swimming enthusiast (understatement) and author of ‘The Black Masseuse; The Swimmer as Hero’.
