The Flight of the Swans with Q&A

Dir. Annabel Vine | 2023 | 52 mins Plus Q&A 

'Adventures of a human swan - turning the impossible into the UNSTOPPABLE'. Join Arctic flight adventurer Sacha Dench - 'the Human Swan’ - on an astonishing journey. 

Sacha paramotored over arctic tundra from Russia to the UK, following the Bewick’s swans along their migration flight path, crossing 11 countries to discover why their numbers were in decline and having remarkable encounters with people along the way. This story is one of astonishing bravery and marvellous adventure. It is a story of hope for our planet that will touch even hardened hearts. 

Sacha is a conservationist, biologist, environmental artist, storyteller, ex freediving champion, Britannia Trophy award winner, Guinness world record holder and UN ambassador to the Convention on migratory birds. She is the founder and CEO of ‘Conservation Without Borders’ with supporters Sir David Attenborough and patrons Sir Ranulph Fiennes and Dame Judi Dench. 

Sacha’s film ‘Flight of the Swans’ will be screened followed by a Q&A with her and an invitation for participants to become patreons/suppporters of CWB.
