Real hallucinations


NARCOSE, by Julie Gautier with Guillaume Néry

Deep water freediving exposes its practitioners to a form of narcosis, which induces several symptoms, among which a feeling of euphoria and levity that earned this phenomenon its nickname of “raptures of the deep”. The short film relates the interior journey of Guillaume Néry, the apnea world champion, during one of his deep water dives. It draws its inspiration from his physical experience and the narrative of his hallucinations.

La pratique de l’apnée en grande profondeur expose les apnéistes à un phénomène de narcose, appelé aussi « ivresse des profondeurs ». NARCOSE relate l’expérience et le voyage intérieur du champion du monde d’apnée, Guillaume Néry, lors d’une descente en grande profondeur. Le film s’inspire de son expérience physique et du récit réel de ses hallucinations.
