DESCENT Rated M
Winner: 2020 Documentary Australia Foundation for Best Australian Documentary
Thrilling, punishing, and beyond treacherous; freediving in freezing water is not for the faint of heart, but for Kiki Bosch, it was a life saver. Kiki dives into the world’s coldest waters on one breath, without a wetsuit. She’s plunged into Finland’s frozen lakes and under Greenland’s icebergs. Her initiation into this sport began as a search for healing, following the debilitating trauma of a sexual assault. After discovering the immense release from ice freediving, Kiki has travelled far and wide, not only to push her physical and psychological limits, but also to inspire others to harness the power of the cold. This unique documentary features stunning underwater footage shot by Australian underwater cinematographers Stefan Andrews, Spencer Frost, Peter Lightowler, and debut director Nays Baghai.
