DOUBLE BILL: In Between | Jago: A Life Underwater LIMITED CAPACITY
Limited Capacity seats available

This is the story of Rohani – an 80 year-old hunter who hobbles around on land but who dives like a fish on a single breath, descending to great depths for several minutes to stalk his prey like a true underwater predator. From a ramshackle hut on the Sulawesi sea, this yoda-like old man tells his story, with the most beautiful images of the Bajau ever captured and dazzling re-enactments of his underwater adventures.

James Reed for Underdog Films in association with Fantomline Pictures, James Morgan Films & Vistaar Productions

The screening will be preceded by the showing of In Between, a hauntingly beautiful and poetic short film about a remote corner of the world where a living relic from a prehistoric age still exists. A magnificent creature that once roamed northern plains alongside mammoths and sabertooth cats, enduring where others vanished.
