Dive like Dolphin Man – virtually

An immersion into the deep blue universe of freediving, DOLPHIN MAN VR is a companion program to the Moving Docs documentary, Dolphin Man.

This series of 3 short VR films in 360° video focuses on the themes of free immersion apnea, the study of cetaceans, and the importance of yoga and breathing for free-divers.

The films feature three of the most accomplished free-divers worldwide: William Trubridge, current world record holder in free-diving, Fabrice Schnöller, free-diver and cetacean researcher, and Sara Campbell, yogi and world record holding free-diver.

Taking up on Jacques Mayol’s pioneering vision, each of these exceptional protagonists take us on a sensory journey into the breathtakingly beautiful oceans of our planet, to explore what happens to the human body and mind in the deep dark blue of the ocean and to rediscover our relationship with the sea.

Moving Docs partners, across Europe, are screening Dolphin Man VR in parallel to their screenings of the documentary, Dolphin Man.

Dolphin Man - Moving Docs

The life story of Jacques Mayol, the greatest free-diver in recorded history, whose life became the inspiration for Luc Besson’s cult-movie Le Grand Bleu. The film discovers how Mayol revolutionized free-diving and brought a new consciousness to our relationship to the sea and our inner-selves.
