52 min.DK/Documentary

For years Nanna Kreutzmann worked as a photojournalist, documenting disasters and conflict around the world. Eventually the enormity of wars, tsunamis and bloody revolutions created an inner trauma, and forced her to leave her former life behind. But when Kreutzmann discovered freediving, she found her sanctuary. In the underwater world of peace, she began documenting the community that embraced her, at the time of her distress. Undersea is an inspiring portrait of an extraordinary woman’s inner life. A rare insight into a beautiful undersea world, where Kreutzmann finally found her home.
