A twentysomething man with inexplicably violent impulses finds solace in the watery depths.
Premiering in the Orrizonti section of the 2019 Venice Film Festival, The Diver centres on a young man with a tendency towards aggression. Fearing the worst, his father suggests diving as an outlet – but can these outbursts merely be submerged?
Featuring bold cinematography, strong performances and a masterful sense of atmosphere, this enigmatic film exemplifies the talents of Accelerator Lab alumni Jamie Helmer and Michael Leonard (The Knife Salesman, MIFF 2018).
