The Superman is a passion project from filmmakers Jack Pirie & Alex Hylands-White along with underwater photographers The Ocean Brothers and Bamford Watch Department. It follows Francisco Del Rosario, who was once a competitive freediver. After years of competing, he realized that it had distracted him from the foundations of the sport: clarity of mind, the inexplicable sensations, and the desire to explore another world beneath the waves.
