This film was put together by two good friends with nothing but love for filmmaking and spearfishing. No sponsors, just passion. Consider sharing it with your best friends to help us tell our next story.


 
 

Enlightening and dark, this adventure had everything: sleeping on the floor without seeing a single fish, discovering a small desert town, an underwater paradise that houses big sharks, endless perfect diving days, fishing and living with the locals, wounds and a life changing experience right at the end of the trip.

I don’t know where to begin. This has to be one of the best batches of spearfishing documenting pics I’ve seen in a long while. Congrats on the great eye!

The concept behind Agua Negra

Agua Negra is an idea nothing more nothing less. It's not here to aim to please everyone or to try to be accessible to all and it isn't here to be a cliché about keeping it real. We are not here to draw lines in sand; it's not about who's the best, or who has caught the most fish, or who dives the deepest… We couldn't care less about any of those things. We're not here to argue about trivialities, life is too short for that. Agua Negra came from the heart and mind of two good friends that decided to change things a bit, both in and out of the water. Two friends that decided to go somewhere they've never been before and take a camera along for the ride. To go back to the roots of spearfishing, to go somewhere they don't know if even has fish or not. To quote a friend “it is not about what you have caught, but what you could catch!”

The Goal?

We've never set out to be anything in particular, we just wanted to make a movie that we could say we were proud off and maybe, if we're lucky, to get people to connect with our story. We did it by documenting, quite simply, things that we believe in. This is not your typical spearfishing movie, it's connected to a different part of the sport something we believe is a whole lot stronger. Right now we have the sort of satisfaction that only comes with the achievement of something we've had to put all of our minds and dedication into it.
