Freedive through the arch in Blue Hole near Dahab, Egypt.
56 meters down, 20-25 meters swimming through and another 56 meters up.
Natalia Molchanova made footage as a freediver.
Alexey Molchanov did the dive with no fins, 3rd men in the world after William Winram (1st, Canada),
William Trubridge (2nd, New Zealand)
Yury Shmatko did the dive even though he got kicked in the head by Alexey (unintentionally, breaststroke kick) on the way down (it is not on the video, but there are emtions after the dive :)
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”. The short film relates the interior journey of Guillaume Néry, the apnea world champion, during one of his deep water dives. It draws its inspiration from his physical experience and the narrative of his hallucinations.
