A tribute to famed free diver Jacques Mayol.

In 1976, Mayol became the first man to descend 100 meters into the ocean safely without any breathing aid. His dangerous but successful free diving feats inspired Luc Besson’s unlikely 1988 cult hit THE BIG BLUE, expanding his fame worldwide. Using the late Mayol’s at times self-important, pretentious writing to frame wonderful archival material, much of it beautiful underwater footage, as well as new interviews, Charitos constructs a serviceable portrait of a sometimes difficult man more at home in the water among aquatic life than on land with other humans.
