Ocean's breath, last call

What is the true essence of Nature? In what way are we interconnected with it? Eddy, the protagonist of this story, explores an uncontaminated corner of the world and understands that everything on this planet is interconnected, and that humans are just a link in the chain that connects all things. Only when we free ourselves from our mentality of "dominant man" will we understand that Nature is the result of all relationships. Through free diving, Eddy approaches the deep and mysterious world of the ocean, perceiving the extraordinary complexity and power of the interconnections between living elements in symbiosis, both aquatic and terrestrial. Like the communities that populate these environments, often in perfect harmony with the ocean itself, which represent an example of life in relation to nature, and can provide valuable lessons on how to protect and conserve this invaluable asset. Eddy's sensitivity, in her search for understanding and connection with the natural world, could inspire many to take care of relationships as if they were precious corals, to capture the beauty of life and feel the energy of nature flowing in everything. It is time to consider Nature as an integral part of ourselves and to call ourselves by its same name.

Director Biography - Giannandrea Carpanzano

Sicilian by birth, Piedmont is my adoptive region. I have been cultivating a passion for videomaking, freediving and trekking for a number of years, up to the point that I turned them into a career. In 2016, I launched an innovative startup company, Professione Droni srl, that operates in the sector of digital video production, with a particular focus on air and water drone videos. In 2018, following the passion I have for the sea, I became a freediving instructor at Apnea Academy, the prestigious freediving school created by Umberto Pelizzari. Over the past few years, I have worked on a number of video projects. The two most important ones are the sports documentary "A fil di cielo", which recounts the heroic feat of three ultrarunners of the Salomon team who run the route of the Creste della Valle Strona, and "Mother Sea", an introspective journey through apnea that leads us to rediscover our primordial origins. Drones and apnea, air and water, my motto is 'I don't like to keep my feet on the ground'.
