Dogwoof have sent us the film’s UK Trailer and Artwork…
Filmmakers Alex Parkinson and Richard da Costa bring their years of experience of filming in challenging environments to a film which immerses viewers in the mysterious and claustrophobic world of saturation diving.
A routine maintenance dive on a North Sea oil well turns into a fight for survival as a computer error aboard the commercial ship The Topaz sends the boat drifting away from its dive site, dragging along everything attached to it: including commercial diver Chris Lemons.
With his diving umbilical cord snagged on a underwater structure and the full weight of the 8,000 tonne ship strained against his lifeline, Chris becomes stranded on the seabed with only 5 minutes of breathing gas and rescue 30 minutes away. LAST BREATH is a truly incredible real life story and race-against-time thriller which will leave audiences gasping.
Last Breath will be in UK Cinemas from 5th April.
