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.
'WEIGHTLESS -- Emotional Freediving' is filmed in Dahab, Egypt, January-February 2011 on three different locations. The five hours of footage has been shot solely on breath hold. The deepest filming was done on 20 meters depth and no single clip was longer than 1.5 minutes. We are not world champion freedivers but we love freediving and making movies!
