“Johanna” – preview of unusual film – video

Soon, an unusual short production presenting the Finnish freediver Johanna Nordblad will have its premiere. The film, made for the Discovery Channel, will, apart from its purely sporting dimension, present freediving, the heroine herself, as well as the unusual Finnish nature in an exceptionally artistic way.

Johanna Nordblad is the holder of an extraordinary world record. It was she who made the deepest dive under the ice, descending 50 metres while holding her breath.

For the Finnish woman, going under water was a way to get back into the sport after she suffered a very serious cycling accident that almost cost her her leg. To understand her love of adrenaline and extreme experiences, it is important to mention that the accident happened during a downhill race.

It was directed by Ian Derry. A legendary man known for his many great projects in film, photography and advertising. Over the years, Derry has worked with the biggest stars in cinema and sports, creating unforgettable works. This is no different in the case of “Johanna”. Teemu Liakka was behind the camera and Kari Ylitalo took the drone shots. The whole is complemented by music composed by Antti Haikonen.

“I heard about Johanna from her sister, who is a photographer. I really enjoyed her story of how she got back on her feet after such a terrible accident, in the most extreme way possible.” – Ian Derry said, before adding:

“I dived under the ice to catch the right perspective on the whole thing and I have to say it was a breathtaking experience. Then, when we met and went to the chosen location – at -24ºC – I already knew I had to make this film. The whole environment and the silence around is something I will never forget.”
