Free Swim is an award-winning documentary film about the paradox of coastal people not knowing how to swim.
Taking place on the island of Eleuthera in The Bahamas, we follow a group of local kids as they overcome their fears, gain confidence and reconnect with their environment by learning to swim in open waters.
With fresh memories of a friend drowning and the conflicts of growing tourism, for these kids it’s not just about floating, but gaining new skills for their future.
