Video: Watch The Gorgeous Film Of Johanna Nordblad Diving Under Artic Ice

The global online video channel Nowness has featured a totally gorgeous film by British director and photographer – Ian Derry – as he profiles Finnish World Record holder Johanna Nordblad.

Talking to Nowness Derry said:

“I became aware of Johanna from her sister who is a photographer. I liked her story—to have such a terrible injury and to overcome it in the most extreme way.  Once I had met her and gone to the location—which at that point was -24C—I knew I had to make the film. The environment and the silence there is something I will never forget.  I dived under the ice to get a perspective on it and it was literally breath taking. What she does is so close to the edge, but she does it in such a comfortable way.”

You can watch the amazing film below or on Nowness.
