Some of the most beautiful cinematography ever to hit TCFF screens awaits you in this remarkable portrait of an endearing uncle and his nephew, who live in a culture so foreign to us that it’s both enlightening and bewildering to enter their world. Alexan (the uncle) happens to be the only remaining Badjao compressor diver on Mabul Island near Borneo—and as we find out, there’s more than one reason why he’s the last of his kind. As his nephew Sari struggles to choose between his uncle’s traditional life at harmony with the sea and working in the nearby resort, you’ll find it hard to believe that anyone ever made a living this way. Meanwhile, back in his home perched on the edge of the ocean, Alexan’s wife is a whole other kettle of amusing trouble. Made to be viewed on the big screen with contemplative moments and deep thoughts throughout, “Walking Under Water” is a unique opportunity to go someplace beautiful and extremely “other.” In Badjao with subtitles
