Aussie Indies: Descent

27 March
Location informationArc Cinema
Event cost$12 / $10

Our regular spotlight on recent highlights from the Australian independent filmmaking scene.  

Kiki Bosch is a professional Dutch ice freediver. She dives into the world’s most freezing waters on a single breath and without a wetsuit, from the ice fjords of Greenland to the frozen lakes of Finland.  

Kiki discovered the healing effect of cold-water immersion after experiencing debilitating trauma from being sexually assaulted and raped. She has pushed her physical and psychological limits to overcome her scars and break boundaries that most people can barely imagine. She now travels across the world and inspires others to harness the power of the cold for their own healing. 

Winner of the Documentary Australia Foundation Award for Best Australian Documentary at the Sydney Film Festival 2020. 

‘Baghai’s documentary, anchored by Bosch’s steadfast serenity, is an empathetic, compelling portrait of a champion – a woman who plunged into freezing waters and saved her own life’ – Rough Cut Film
