Breathe... 300 feet, One Breath, No Second Chances!
FilmWorks Entertainment enters the underwater world of free diving with the documentary ‘Breathe’. Available on DVD & Video on Demand nationwide September 18, 2012
Sept. 15, 2012 - PRLog -- Martin Khodabakhshian (9-Time Emmy Award-winning ESPN producer) directs and produces this fascinating documentary that truly goes to new depths in the search for man's physical and mental limits. Breathe follows New Zealander, William Trubridge as he attempts to break his own world record in the extreme sport of Freediving. William attempts to dive completely unaided to a depth of 300ft, almost halfway to the bottom of the deepest blue hole in the world - "Dean's Blue Hole" located in the Bahamas.
Featuring candid interviews with locals who live in fear of the hole, interviews with William's family members who are in constant fear for his life and stunning underwater footage of William in action, Breathe will literally leave you holding your own breath as William takes us on a journey to the depths of mankind's fascination with the underwater world.
Born on May 24th, 1980, William learned to swim at the age of 18 months, and was freediving to 15m by the age of 8, however he did not begin serious training for the sport until 2003. In 2004 he became the first non-Italian instructor at Umberto Pelizzari's prestigious Apnea Academy. Since then he has trained extensively with Pelizzari, and written the translations of the 'Manual of Freediving' (Idelson & Gnocchi) and the Apnea Academy Instructors Manual.
William holds the world record in the discipline of Unassisted Constant Weight (no fins), and can dive to over 100 meters (330 feet) without the use of fins, rope, weight, or any other form of assistance. In 2010 he also broke the world record in the discipline Free Immersion, with 116m (380 feet). He currently trains on the island of Tenerife, at the Tenerife Top Training Center during the summer and Dean's Blue Hole in the winter.
