It’s an incredible true story – On a cold night in March 1984, a few miles off the south coast of Iceland, a fishing boat sank with all its men. One of the crew miraculously managed to survive. After five hours in the ocean, the exhausted man washed ashore, only to find himself on a deadly, uninhabited lava field.
Based on an astonishing true incident, “The Deep” is the tale of an ordinary man whose will to live made him both an inexplicable scientific phenomenon and a reluctant national hero.
From director Baltasar Kormákur (2 GUNS, Contraband, Jar City, 101 Reykjavík), it’ll be at the Edinburgh Film Fest on Thursday 20th June, and in UK cinemas on 12th July.
