Synopsis

Dive is an urban fairy tale about a self-destructive man who can't feel anything. From the moment he sets eyes on a mysterious young woman, something inside him stirs. Unbeknownst to him, she is part of the White Eye community, a marginalized group of hyper-sensitive beings inhabiting the same world as humans. When her true identity is revealed, his destructive nature reaches its peak as he contemplates a drastic escape from his melancholy.

Biography

Kaveh is an award-winning filmmaker and musician from Montreal. His work confronts the gap between the two arts: creating films that have the intuitive and immediate feel of music, and creating music that has the evocative energy of film.

He has shot in such diverse locations as Mexico, South Africa, Honduras, France, Nunavut, China, and French Guyana. His feature films “Ricochet« and «Rumba« are currently in development.
