A Film by Friction Collective

‘Swimming outside turned into an addiction. Almost an obsession. So I’d start seeking out different types of water: lakes, rivers, waterfalls. Any body of water that I’d come across, I’d swim in.’ – Laura Owen Sanderson

Hydrotherapy is a story of adaptation, strength & rewilding set in the raw and beautiful landscapes of Snowdonia National park. Laura has not only overcome a life changing illness through wild swimming, but has also found a greater connection to the natural world. This has ignited her mission to make a stand for the natural environment, and protect wild waters and wild spaces across the UK.

With adventures limited to our doorsteps, we have found ourselves yearning for wild spaces & human connection. If you’re also in need of escape & inspiration, we hope you’ll enjoy a new short film from Friction Collective, Hydrotherapy.
