Happy New Year. This is a link to a film passed on to me by a friend. It is lovely, and well worth watching.
Breaking The Ice features a cast of hundreds of hardy souls who have all chosen to risk the ice cold waters of Brockwell Park Lido on a bitter December day. This film celebrates the return of the annual winter swim in 2009, but the swimmers are in for a shock – the water temperature is just 2 degrees, and the Lido is covered in a sheet of ice.
This is the first short made by noformat films, a collective of South London filmmakers.
