Benenes An Mor – Women of the Sea by Storylines

We are delighted to share the first in a series of short digital stories by Storylines that explore how our Cornish culture is entwined with the sea.

A woman is standing in the sea with her arms stretched out either side of her. It's a sunny day and the water is calm.
Swimming in the sea has always been part of Cornish culture, with people developing their own unique routines and rituals around swimming. Benenes An Mor shares the personal experiences of 4 women, of different ages, who are all drawn to swim in the sea.

These short films were created by Storylines. They were commissioned by Cornwall 365, thanks to funding from Arts Council England Culture Recovery Fund, and Cornwall Council Creative Cornwall Calling.
