Free diving under ice

Finnish freediver Johanna Nordblad holds the world record for a 50-meter dive under ice.
She discovered her love for the sport through cold-water treatment while recovering from a downhill biking accident that almost took her leg.
British director and photographer Ian Derry captures her taking a plunge under the Arctic ice.
“Once I had met her and gone to the location—which at that point was -24C—I knew I had to make the film. The environment and the silence there is something I will never forget.
“I dived under the ice to get a perspective on it and it was literally breath taking. What she does is so close to the edge, but she does it in such a comfortable way.”
