Directed by Kate Webber (USA, 2017, 75 min.). Digital.

This documentary follows accomplished open water swimmer Kim Chambers as she chases her biggest dream yet: to become the first woman to complete a solo swim from the Farallon Islands to the Golden Gate Bridge—a 30-mile stretch of water known for frigid temperatures, swirling currents, and the world’s largest great white sharks. Many consider it to be the hardest marathon swim in the world, and rightfully so, as only four other people (all men) have completed it. Following Kim during the physically and emotionally challenging lead-up to the swim and then the swim itself, Kim Swims presents a look into what propels her to conquer her fear, pursue her passion, and achieve her greatest potential.

Followed by a discussion with the director, schedule permitting.
