Dancing in the Water

Dancing in the Water by Wayne Ewing follows US adventure swimmer Matthew Moseley as he swims 25 miles across Lake Pontchartrain – accompanied by support boat complete with jazz musicians. “The heart of the documentary is truly about the recovery of the lake, with music, told through swimming,” Moseley said. This was the first of a series of three open swims Moseley accomplished. The second was a 24-mile swim in the ocean to protect the coral reefs off the Isle of Puerto Rico, the other was 47 miles down the Colorado River.

Dancing in the Water will have its northshore US premier at the Pontchartrain Film Festival on Friday 6 November.
