Walking Under Water Official Trailer

The inaugural season of the Bozeman Doc Series continues with the Montana premiere of the acclaimed documentary, Walking Under Water, Sunday, November 23rd at 7pm at the Emerson Cultural Center. Winner of a Special Jury Award at the Hot Docs Documentary Film Festival, Walking Under Water chronicles the last days of the Borneo sea nomads. A touching story of 10-year-old Sari and his uncle Alexan, the last Badjao compressor diver from Mabul island and their unique bond with the ocean. The film presents the Badjao tribe’s ancient traditions as a magical narrative, spinning the urgent pressures into a hybrid of fantasy, fiction and fact.

The Examiner says of the film, “Immersed in this underwater world and way of life, the beauty and simplicity of WALKING UNDER WATER flows with the easy lull of the nighttime tides and the tranquil sounds of the sea. A must see.”

And the Hot Docs Jury wrote, “The film reaches beyond its subject filling its narrative with the grand beauty and awe of cinema. Reminiscent of the classic documentaries of Robert Flaherty, WALKING UNDER WATER is an exquisite and lyrical experience.”
