Following its premiere at the virtual Nightstream Film Festival last month, we've learned today that Doppelganger Releasing will release Swedish filmmaker Joachim Heden's intense survival thriller Breaking Surface on VOD platforms this December.
Breaking Surface will make its nationwide debut beginning December 15th on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, Vudu, and YouTube.
Shot on location in Sweden and Norway, Breaking Surface stars Moa Gammel and Madeleine Martin as half-sisters clamoring against time on the ocean floor.
In the film, "A few days after Christmas, half-sisters Ida (Gammel) and Tuva (Martin) set out on a winter dive in a remote part of the Norwegian coastline. Towards the end of the dive, a rockslide traps Tuva under water. As Ida surfaces to call for help, she discovers that the rockslide has struck above water as well, burying their equipment, phones and car keys–they are completely cut off from any chance of outside rescue. As the frantic race for survival unfolds, Ida is put to the ultimate test of character and forcefulness. During Ida’s fight to save Tuva, a fractured sisterhood is exposed, and when all seems lost, the stakes rise beyond simple survival."
"I’m deeply impressed with how the lead actresses Moa and Madeleine have delivered fantastic emotional performances under these extreme condition," said Heden. "All the diving we see in the film is done by Moa and Madeleine themselves without stunt doubles."
