Narcose, Directed by Julie Gautier feat. Guillaume Néry | Freedive Earth

Narcose, Directed by Julie Gautier feat. Guillaume Néry

You may remember Julie Gautier from when she directed Naughty Boy feat. Beyonce's latest music video Runnin' (Lose It All). Exploring some of her other work, we stumbled upon a short film called Narcose, again starring freediving world champion Guillaume Néry. The project came about when Néry related his visions during his deep dives to Gautier, "I immediately started to picture it in my mind as a beautiful visual experience, with a strong artistic potential,' the director said. "The short film relates the interior journey of Guillaume Néry, during one of his deep water dives. It draws its inspiration from his physical experience and the narrative of his hallucinations. Alternating between reality and imagination, the film shows how far human abilities can be stretched and it reveals the intimate and primal bond between the athlete’s inner world and his aquatic environment, bringing the understanding of the human relationship with the underwater world to new levels."  

See her vision come to life in the Narcose official trailer. The short film is also released online at
