The UK premiere of this newly commissioned film chronicles a professional athlete’s journey from rest, to exhaustion, and recovery. Exhaustion was filmed in epic detail and extreme slow motion at upto 1,000 frames-per-minute, with Chris Watson’s recording capturing real-time data from both inside and outside the athlete’s body.
