Fishpeople (Netflix documentary)
Last weekend, "Fishpeople" showed up on my Netflix "recommended for you" list. Here's the trailer. It is a documentary with 6 vignettes of people who share a transformational/spiritual connection to the ocean. I was immediately intrigued. "They better have an open water swimmer," I thought to myself. But then I shuddered, "It will probably be some some self-promoting poser like Ben Hooper or [she whose name shall not be mentioned]."
I was very delighted when the third story was, in fact, an open water swimmer, and even better, it was none other than the lovely Lynne Cox. A fine choice and a great representative of our beloved sport.
The movie won't appeal to a mass audience, but I loved it. If you are on this site, you likely enjoy a strong bond with the ocean and will likely also enjoy this film.
"Lights go out and I can't be saved
Tides that I tried to swim against
Have brought be down upon my knees
Oh I beg, I beg and plead..."
