FREEDIVER: INTO THE ABYSS (30')
GENRE: TRAVEL ADVENTURE



Mandy-Rae Cruickshank is on the leading edge of a small core of extreme athletes who compete in the sport of free-diving. As she propels herself through the dark waters to a depth of 78 meters, or 256 feet, an extremely focussed mental state is vital, not to mention amazing lung capacity. This death defying sport demands superior training in all areas: physical, mental and spiritual. Mandy has a lung capacity almost a third greater than non-divers. She must kick her way down a line to depth, grab a tag and kick her way back to the surface all while holding a single breath for over two and a half minutes. Her year long endeavor to capture the world record is breathtaking in more ways than one.

Through exclusive interviews and stunning underwater footage filmmaker Robert Heimbecker chronicles the different disciplines of Free Diving. He deftly captures Mandy?s gruelling training regime and mental preparation, her past accomplishments and future goals. Visit the FREEDIVER website: www.Mandy-Rae.com
