Director Statement

We all know water is the source of all life. But for Richard Pace it's more than just a source of sustenance - being in the water is an immense source of healing and provides the framework for a loving community. Being able to capture that essence was really heart-warming to see, and it made the filmmaking process a truly special experience.

This is a documentary that only reveals a small slice of Richard's astounding life. I wanted to literally and figuratively depict what goes on under the surface - both in his body and mind. Loneliness, fear, friendship, hope, love. Years of battling a debilitating bone disease has not worn him down. He's stronger than ever, and it's great to see Richard is still keeping pace.

Alternate Synopsis:
