About the Brunel Museum
Named after one of the most influential figures of the Industrial Revolution, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, this museum tells the story of all of his great works, from the first modern ocean liner to the world’s largest ship. Open seven days a week, the museum is also a popular London event venue, and includes the huge Grand Entrance Hall, the world’s oldest underground theatre.
Film screenings at Adventure Films Underground:
Watch these three renowned water-related adventure films in the oldest tunnel of the world’s oldest underground:
- The Swimming Granny (8 minutes)
This film tells the story of a grandmother in her 80’s who finds joy in swimming in the sea every day near her Faroe Islands home, no matter how cold it is. She credits her life-long association with the sea as the cure of her postnatal depression.
The Swimming Granny was produced by Faroese film-maker Heiðrik á Heygum.
- North of the Sun (46 minutes)
Two Norwegian surfers discover a secluded Arctic beach near northern Norway. In bitter winds, ice and snow, they follow their dream by surfing in the world’s wildest waves in nine months of darkness. During that time, they live off expired food and build a driftwood cabin for shelter.
The two men, Inge Wegge and Jørn Ranum, have won more than twenty international awards for North of the Sun.
- And Then We Swam (37 minutes)
Eager to prove themselves, two friends go rowing in the Indian Ocean, even though they have never rowed before. They begin on the western coast of Australia, whey they set off with their second-hand boat on a journey into the unknown. Produced by London-based film-maker Ben Finney, And Then We Swam won the Best Film award at Canada’s Banff Mountain Film Festival in 2014.
