a few days ago i read the review posted on the front page of this forum, of the imax movie "ocean men". i thought it sounded like a real interesting movie and emidialy contacted my local imax theater, who told me it was an old movie and that they dont show it anymore.

so i went netsurfing, trying to find another imax where they would show it, but there is non.
then i tried to find it as dvd, but it does not sell either new or secondhand..

now what is the point of showing a review of a movie that does not show anywhere and isnt possible to get as video/dvd anymore

or does someone know where to get this pruduction..?:confused:

Hi,

OceanMen remains one of the most beautiful docu-films about FreeDiving. Due to problems with the company that produced the film (h2b5) the film has not been taken up by many IMAX cinemas and no DVD has been produced. I personally know the director, Bob Talbot, and it causes him much pain that this is the case but even he doesn't have a copy of the movie.

The reason it is on the homepage is that it is from "Deep in Archive" which highlights old articles in our collection.

Stephan,

Is it just a money issue? I am quite sad about it. I only saw it once at the imax and now wish I had seen it again then.

It is a money issue of sorts...h5b5 went bankrupt and the new owners of the company didn't feel that OceanMen was important to their product strategy. We interviewed Bob last year and he makes comment on it: http://www.deeperblue.net/article.php/445/21

I've got the documentairy on DVD. Last year it was broadcasted on TV on ProSieben. It's 80 min long and not 2 hours, but maybe Christian is talking about a new documentaire.

At the same time the IMAX movie was released (45 min), the documentairy also came out.

I also got a copy of the IMAX movie Campot style, but I think it's illegal, so now I don't know for sure if I have it. hehe.

I think that it is possible to get a VHS of the documentary from Umberto or Apnea Academy.

Hopefully we will see the Imax in Riccione next winter.

PM Sent, if I get copies of these they might just end up available to download via bittorrent or P2P. You might refer to the following sites and keep an eye on them if you're interested in obtaining these.

I typically will buy movies I like, cause I believe that artists should be paid for their work, but they put out so much commercial/formula junk out now days. And this case is a perfect example of why file sharing exists, for material that is not otherwise obtainable.
