Breathless by Oleksii Sobolev

A synchronized swimmer tries to win the championship and her coach's heart. But then, a new girl shows up.

A synchronized swimmer tries to lead a team, win a championship and earn the love of a coach in director Oleksii Sobolev’s beautifully shot, engrossing short drama.

“Breathless” is a stunning technical achievement, shot entirely underwater and without any dialogue. Shot on an Alexa with customized underwater equipment, the camera captures gorgeous, stunning images, as well as the power and grace of the cast, who include famed Russian swimmers like Anna Udovik and Olympic champion Angelika Timanina.

The result is a point-of-view that viewers rarely see, especially of a sport full of beauty and charm above the water’s surface — but a lot of hard work and effort below.

Entirely dialogue-free, “Breathless” is genuinely unforgettable viewing that mesmerizes with a unique blend of elegance and strength.

“Breathless” is part of Piter By, a collection of short films set in Saint Petersburg. Learn more at http://omele.to/2uww0UT.
