A 52-minute adventure documentary by German filmmaker Rouven Blankenfeld, Defeating Oceans Seven, will be shown on March 8th at the 11th Annual San Francisco International Ocean Film Festival.

It is a film produced by Red Bull Media House that documents Stephen Redmond’s question to become the first person to achieve the Oceans Seven.

There are seven ocean passages that ultra open water swimmers dream of crossing. After the English Channel, Catalina, Gibraltar, Molokai, New Zealand’s Cook Strait, and the Irish Sea, our hero’s last and coldest, is Japan’s Tsugaru Strait between Honshu and Hokkaido. Marathon swimmer Stephen Redmond attempts to conquer this most difficult passage and be the first to complete all seven.”
