VIDEO: Hallucinatory NARCOSE captures free diving's beauty and danger (NSFW)

Thalassophobes and NSFW-phobes will want to skip this beautiful short about deepwater free diver Guillaume Néry and the kinds of hypoxia-induced hallucinations he experiences when free diving to depths beyond 100 meters. Thalassophiles who love beautiful underwater cinematography and trippy dream sequences will find the underwater footage hypnotic.

Written and directed by Julie Gautier with cinematography by Jacques Ballard. Animation and effects from Fursy Teyssier and Forêt Bleue, respectively.

Note: contains some nudity, because it is French.
