Ocean Men: Extreme Dive
Follow the current world champions of freediving, Pipin Ferreras and Umberto Pelizzari as they attempt to do the impossible - descend to a depth of over 162 meters (531 feet) and return to the surface on just one breath of air.
The intense rivalry between champions Ferreras and Pelizzari will highlight the amazing ability of the human body to adapt to the most demanding situations. Each dive by the two champions is a wonder of science, but just as fascinating are the wildly different approaches each takes with regard to their training and preparation. Their colorful lives and unyielding passion for this unique sport, as captured by acclaimed underwater director and cinematographer Bob Talbot (DOLPHINS, FREE WILLY), will thrill, inspire, and excite audiences ... all while fostering a deeper respect for life itself.
