This Is Why We Dive

A new short film captures the fascination with the underwater world every diver experiences

Lee Burghard's 'My Sanctuary' is a beautifully edited short film that was created in an attempt to share the filmmaker's feelings and passion for diving with others, something Burghard has found hard to put into words. 

'Diving to me is more than just a recreational sport, it has a much deeper meaning. To me its about adventure, exploring the unknown, and that sense of freedom I feel every time I sink below the surface. For that brief hour underwater, I'm just lost in the moment...,' the US filmmaker explains.

The short film includes footage from Honduras, Palau and South Florida and has won the first prize in this year's Our World Underwater competition
