“Dolphin Man” tells the real-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 documentary draws us into Mayol’s world, capturing his compelling journey, while immersing viewers into the sensory and transformative experience of the sea. Mayol was the first diver to reach 100 meters below the sea, revolutionizing freediving and promoting an urgent vision of our need to reconnect with nature.
Director of Photography Stelios Apostolopoulos is expected to attend this screening.
