Film Review // Blue Hue // Natasha Brooks
Winner of our Women in Mountain Adventure film competition 2015 with the BMC, ShAFF and Sport is Beautiful this film is truly stunning. Charting Natasha Brooks’ exploration of wild swimming in the UK it is a visually arresting testament to what one woman can do with inspiration, an idea and the confidence to follow a concept in spite of what others might have to say about it. The film features Natasha, as well as being self-shot & edited by Natasha, who is an artist based in Snowdonia. It is accompanied by a stunning soundscape which captures the mood of the film perfectly.
What’s evident is the love that Natasha has for water and wild swimming. Her website really shows her passion for the documentation of wild swimming in wild places.
To help dispel the gender imbalance in the outdoor film industry Banff Mountain Film & Book Festival have awarded Natasha’s film a complementary entry into their high profile festival. Congratulations to Natasha on the exceptional filming, editing and grading of this award-winning short.
We hope to run the Women in Mountain Adventure film competition again, so please sign up to our newsletter if you have been inspired and we will notify you when the competition opens again. In the meantime, get filming.
