The Swimmers

The Swimmers

2022; US/UK; 134 mins; Cert 15; Dir: Sally El Hosaini

Two young sisters flee their home in war-torn Damascus and embark on a long, harrowing journey as refugees. When the engine of their overcrowded dinghy cuts out halfway across the Aegean Sea, they put their hearts and their champion swimming skills to heroic use, saving the lives of all on board. Just a year later, Yusra competes at the 2016 Rio Olympics as part of the Refugee Olympic Team. This is an inspiring film, brutally honest and with real world relevance. Not to be missed!
