Freediving is a sport of diving underwater with just one breath in your lungs. It’s about keeping the mind at ease, taking a deep breath and letting your self fall into the ocean. This movie is made to show this sport from a new perspective – an emotional and mythical view. It’s fiction.
For a long time we were asking our selves why the internet did not have any videos of freediving as an emotional experience – something like ‘Le Grand Bleu’ by Luc Besson. Every clip on YouTube had something to do with a stop watch or a long rope. Suddenly Guillaume Nery and Julie Gautier emerged with their film Free Fall.
Their film managed to show freediving from a totally new perspective and give the world something never seen before. To us Guillaume Nery and Julie Gautier’s ‘Free Fall’ have started a new short film genre from a freediver’s perspective. We wish to contribute to this genre with our film.
