A man with physical disabilities took on a charity swim, which his brother has turned into a short film.

'My Brother Matthew' tells the story of former Stansted man Matthew Baker, who in 2019 decided to swim the length of the English Channel in his local swimming pool. He swam a mile a week to raise money for sufferers of multiple sclerosis.

Directed by his brother Simon, the film shows the numerous obstacles Matthew encounters along the way, both in the water and in his personal life.


'My Brother Matthew' is showing for one night only at Southmill Arts Theatre at 3pm on Sunday, September 10.

Afterwards there will be a question and answer session with both Simon and Matthew.
