Short Film Narcose: A Hommage to the World of Freediving

Julie Gautier's short film "Narcose" documenting her husband Guillaume Nery's freedive down to 125 meters, is one great hommage to freediving with incredibly beautiful underwater cinematography.

Deep water freediving exposes its practitioners to a form of narcosis, which induces several symptoms, among which a feeling of euphoria and levity that earned this phenomenon its nickname of «raptures of the deep».

NARCOSE relates the interior journey of Guillaume NĂ©ry, the apnea world champion, during one of his deep water dives. This short film draws its inspiration from his physical experience and the narrative of his hallucinations.

Alternating between reality and imagination, the film shows how far human abilities can be stretched and it reveals the intimate and primal bond between the athlete’s inner world and his aquatic environment, bringing the understanding of the human relationship with the underwater world to new levels.
