In partnership with Netflix and The LightHouse Cinema, we were thrilled to present a special screening of the highly anticipated Netflix documentary, ‘The Deepest Breath’ last week. Directed by the talented Laura McGann, this extraordinary film takes us on a captivating journey into the exhilarating and perilous world of freediving. Join us as we explore the depths of the ocean and the depths of the human spirit through the remarkable story of Italian freediver Alessia Zecchini.
‘The Deepest Breath’ invites viewers to plunge into the world of extreme sport, freediving, where competitors push their bodies to the limits without the aid of scuba gear. This acclaimed documentary follows Alessia Zecchini, an ambitious Italian freediver, as she sets her sights on shattering a world record in this awe-inspiring discipline.
The film delves into the intense physical and mental preparation required for such a feat, as well as the inherent risks associated with pushing the boundaries of human capability. Freediving, with its challenges and dangers, becomes a metaphor for the determination and relentless pursuit of personal excellence that drives Alessia forward.
Following the screening of ‘The Deepest Breath,’ we had the honor of hosting a Q&A session with the film’s creators. Filmmaker Laura McGann, along with producers Jamie D’alton and Anne McLoughlin, shared their experiences, insights, and inspirations behind the making of the documentary.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to filmmaker Laura McGann, producers Jamie D’alton and Anne McLoughlin, and all those involved in creating this piece of cinema.
