Synopsis

Mankind has landed on the moon and flies around in space. But under our feet there are about a million kilometers of cave systems—only one per cent of which has been explored. The 19-minute film accompanies experienced cave explorer and mountaineer Lea Odermatt on her tours beneath the surface of the earth, in claustrophobic passageways and gigantic caverns and chambers usually hidden from the majority of humanity.

Director’s Statement

Cave explorers are physically and psychologically strong, daring and at the same time cautious. I‘m fascinated by people who place themselves in borderline situations, and by the way they handle them. With a 360° film the range of spaces in a cave system can be conveyed. It is the optimum format to portray the timeless, enigmatic and beautiful aspects of this underground world. Thanks to 360° experience it is possible to convey to a wide audience in both physical and emotional terms how it feels to crawl through narrow passages, to hang in dizzying shafts, to observe with amazement from very close quarters the fascinating halls hidden underground.
