Waterlog is a short documentary by director Ben Cox which tells the story of writer Joe Minihane and his battle with anxiety.

Finding an antidote in the form of wild swimming Joe sets out to retrace the route of environmentalist Roger Deakin’s nature writing classic, Waterlog.

In a journey that takes him to every corner of the UK he eventually finds relief, not just in the cold waters he swims in, but by being open and honest about his mental health. Read more about Joe’s journey in his book Floating: A Life Regained. See here and purchase here.

The Observer described Floating: A Life Regained, “With a talent for detail…Minihane examines how his engagement with the outdoors took him on a transformative emotional journey.”
