A beautiful short film here by Faroese film maker HeiÃ°rikur Ã¡ Heygum, about his grandmother Maria Ã¡ Heygum. Nicknamed “the swimming granny”, she had been swimming in the ocean out of Vestmanna for 48 years, when this movie was produced. Imagine, every day in 7Â°C warm water (44.6Â°F), no matter the weather, no matter the waves. Enjoying it :-)
Here is a segment from Faroese TV about the short film, with clips out of it and interview with the film maker.
