10 Years: Guillaume Nery base jumping at Dean’s Blue Hole, filmed on breath hold by Julie Gautier

I remember the first time I ever watched this short film. I was bewitched. Floored by its simplicity, its power. The pleasurable agony of that incredible track, You Make Me Feel by Archive.

That was ten years ago today.

It has lost none of its potency.

If you haven’t seen this, turn your lights off, sound up, and enjoy.


Guillaume Nery is a record holding free diver. Filmmaker Julie Gautier – also a record holding freediver – did all the cinematography on breath hold . The two (who are married to each other) are still making films about the surreal magic of water.
