A collection of dips and swims that appeared in the short film 'My Big White Thighs & Me' by Maia Media.
The story is about womanhood, miscarriage, healing, loving your own skin & freezing your bum off in cold water. It's Hannah’s personal story of how she rebalanced her life and began to appreciate the small things by dipping her feet and taking the plunge.
She had fallen out of love with her own body. Frustrated, she wishes they didn’t have to hang out quite so much. Committed to making a change she sets herself the simple goal of swimming in open water at least once a month for a year.
As she braves the elements throughout the seasons to swim in wild places, she develops a newfound appreciation for this beautiful island of ours and the quiet adventure that can be found when we begin to explore.
The swims in this collection all appear within the film.
