Adversarial Tides – An Open Water Swimming Movie

CATALINA CHANNEL, USA. December 23. ADVERSARIAL Tides is a new film directed by Chase Kenney and produced by Nick Gismondi that captures the excitement and the risks inherent in open water swimming.

Adversarial Tides is a gripping tale that pits four solo channel swimmers against the violent mood swings of the Pacific Ocean. Marine life, ocean swells and the dark cold of night swimming present challenges and pitfalls for the swimmers, crew and pilots.

Kenney and Gismondi offer constant visual overload, brimming with scenes well-understood among open water swimmers and gripping to those who prefer terra firma.

The film takes audiences on an emotional rollercoaster of failure and success in an element inhospitable to man. Whether the protagonists were standing in the escort boat, plotting their course, or swimming out in the Pacific, the award-winning film duo provide the sport of open water swimming with the platform to stand tall in front of movie goers.
