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
