The signal got stronger.
It pushed through the ground, And across my mind.

It was time.

Dive Odyssey - A meditative journey into the depths of water - and mind

Dive Odyssey takes the viewers on a journey into crystal clear darkness where the only light ever is man-made. The film is an ode to thousands of years of mystical experience of water. It is also a tribute to science-fiction classics, some of which may be recognized in the film.

The film follows the Explorer (Gemma Smith) through her exploration of an unknown planet. A strange signal is reaching for her from the depths of ice. She makes her way through the snow, looking for the source. Once she finds the spot, she begins a journey into the dark, ice cold world submerged below the mountains.

She falls through the water column. The signal keeps calling her further into the depths. The sense of time and self start fading. It is like a space journey where physical and mental lose their borders. Thought and matter mix. She encounters a shape in the darkness. It is the Silver Diver (Andy Torbet). During the encounter, she turns into something ancient, communicating through her movement and trying to find the connection. What first seems like something hazy and hard to understand turns into enlightenment and realization.
