SURFACE TENSION, 6min,. UK, Documentary
Directed by Amanda Bluglass, Zena Holloway
What lies beneath the surface of Britain's rivers? Our relationship with our waterways is a romantic one, but England's precious chalk streams are as polluted as they were half a decade ago. Surprising discoveries are revealed in this poignant reflection on life, above and below the waterline.
A collaboration with celebrated underwater photographer Zena Holloway and Director Amanda Bluglass, this poetic short investigates the state of some of Britain's most precious chalk streams.
The sad truth is that Britain's rivers are just as polluted as five years ago (source: Defra). In January 2022 not a single English river received a clean bill of health for chemical contamination. This film examines how our romantic beliefs are at shocking odds with what truly lies beneath.
