IRME The sponge diving movie

22 September 2014 - 04:35 AM

Dear all,

We recently shot a short movie in Bodrum Turkey in July 2013 and editing is finished just a week ago. I have a feeling that many of you might be interested to watch the movie. I try to submit it as many festivals as possible this way people interested and dear colleagues may have chance to watch it in their hometown in a film festival. But as you could appreciate it is very hard to achieve this. 
If you would like to have the movie in an underwater festival or appropriate platform close to you please don't hesitate to contact me. Here is the trailer of the movie;
A boat and its working crew in the middle of the Mediterranean sea. a father, a captain, never wanted his boy to work on the sea. The boy finds work in another boat a result of his affection of the sea. The boy learns diving from  Omer 'The cripple' a famous diver working on that boat whom was healthy without a bend then. Time passes the cripple and the boy ends up working on the captain’s boat. There is sponge shortage, dives pass but no sponge! Crew is upset and there is frustration among the crew. The tension between the trilogy (captain, the boy & the cripple), drives the viewer into a desolation in the middle of the sea and the seabed.
