Back from the Abyss (Herbert Nitsch Story)
On 6 June 2012, diver Herbert Nitsch attempts to improve his own freediving world record by another 100 feet to 800 feet (244m). The record attempt off the Greek island of Santorini is only the first stage in his ‘1,000ft’ project. On this summer afternoon and despite painstaking preparation, Nitsch suffers the worst-case scenario. Having reached a depth of more than 818ft (249,5m), he falls unconscious and rescue divers bring him to the surface. For almost a year after the incident nobody knew what happened or how Nitsch was doing. The documentary accompanies Nitsch during his amazing recovery away from the public eye. It includes world-exclusive footage of the months of preparation leading up to and including Nitsch’s near-fatal accident off Santorini, of his difficult rehabilitation in specialist clinics and, finally, of his return to the stillness of the underwater ocean world.

Amazon Dive
Colombian Orlando Duque, 11 times cliff-diving world champion, prepares for a challenge to realise one of his
dreams. On an unprecedented journey into the unknown, he plans to jump from one of the gigantic Ceiba trees in the Amazon. He shares his experience with the indigenous tribes that live in the area. This is a film that exalts nature, the knowledge and wisdom of the indigenous tribes and the magic of one of the world’s greatest ecological reserves.
