“Uranium madness” – diving in Kowary – full movie + gallery

For today, we have prepared something completely unique for you. A full-length film by Przemysław Głębocki entitled “Uranium Madness”. The production lasts almost 40 minutes and focuses on diving in an inactive and flooded uranium mine in Kowary. Over the past few years, this place has become very popular and is visited by more and more divers hungry for the experience of diving in an overhead environment. Without further ado, we encourage you to read a few sentences from the author and watch this very interesting film.

A work of life! Without pompousness, that is how I can describe this film. Mainly because I have never made any other serious film in my life ???? This was the first and probably the last.

“Uranium Madness” is something special for me. It is something to which I devoted thousands of hours of work, deliberations, searching for solutions in an art which is so new to me, namely film documentation.

The story told is… just a story. About diving, cave diving, Podgórze Mine, teamwork, fun, etc… Generally, we did a cool action, which I had the pleasure to be in charge of, by the way I recorded something there. Then, by the way, we did an interview with Michal. Piotrek Kardasz, by the way, suggested me some interesting tricks, and then by the way he helped…. And there it went… It was fun, there was adventure and vision…. Hollywood!

The film has already taken part in several film festivals. It has already been a success that it made it to the finals at several of them. It has never won anything spectacular, but the important thing is that it has been seen by hundreds, if not thousands of people … and that is the most valuable prize! Yes, the reward for an amateur filmmaker like me is that the film is watched…. ONLY THAT! Until the filmmaker grows a feather in his cap… That’s why I count on likes (Like it), and the ultimate dream is a comment (“feedback is a gift”).

Thanks to everyone for participating, for the good word, for the fun. For posterity! To the grandchildren!

Before watching the film, which lasts more than half an hour, be sure to turn on the high resolution (HD, the underwater part of the mine is really beautiful) and turn up the music (April band from Zambrow! Absolute Chad!, which I missed at one stage

window.onload = function(e) {
if(typeof ugCheckForErrors == “undefined”){
document.getElementById(“unitegallery_20_1”).innerHTML = “Unite Gallery Error – gallery js and css files not included in the footer. Please make sure that wp_footer() function is added to your theme.“;}
else{ ugCheckForErrors(“unitegallery_20_1”, “jquery”);}
};

Information about the film:

The film is about extreme diving, time and secrets that, despite the passage of years, successfully resist being revealed.

The place of action is the ‘Podgórze’ Uranium Mine in Kowary. Its main purpose of existence, in the 1950s, was the extraction of raw material for the construction of an atomic bomb in the Soviet Union. Thanks to the authorities of the time, the mine was one of the most closely guarded secrets of communist Poland. Today, access to its several dozen kilometres of corridors is protected by itself. Only a few who are able to face the darkness and the labyrinth completely flooded with water, as well as the quickly passing time, have access to a small part of the hidden secret.

The documentary tells the story of one project during which a group of cave divers attempt to reach previously unexplored flooded parts of a mine.

Time is of the essence during this type of activity. A minute for a diver working more than 100m below the surface is just a few breaths. However, the same minute on the surface means several hundred heavy sighs and shifting from foot to foot in anticipation of the return and emergence of colleagues exploring the underground and getting to know the true face of the Mine – the deepest dive site available in Poland. The film documents the deepest open-circuit dive in Poland performed to date.
