Graceful Dance Shot At The Bottom Of The World's Deepest Pool

Graceful Dance Shot At The Bottom Of The World's Deepest Pool

In this magnificent short film, diver and underwater filmmaker Julie Gautier executes a graceful dance at the bottom of the world's deepest pool near Venice, Italy.

Gautier has been experimenting with underwater film work since she was 26. She's self-taught and draws her inspiration from dance, comics, cinema, and her partner Guillaume Néry, the free-diving world champion.

The film's title, Ama takes its name from the Japanese word for “woman of the sea,” which also can be used to refer to Japan’s traditional shell collectors. The piece was made for women.

“For me, this film is a way to say: you are not alone,” says Gautier, “open yourself to others, talk about your sufferings and your joys.”

I dedicate this film to all the women of the world.

"Ama is a silent film. It tells a story everyone can interpret in their own way, based on their own experience," she continues. "There is no imposition, only suggestions."

"I wanted to share my biggest pain in this life with this film. For this is not too crude, I covered it with grace. To make it not too heavy, I plunged it into the water."

"I dedicate this film to all the women of the world."
