Dark Blue is an independent production, under the management of the “PERMANENT MEMORIES PRODUCTION”, directed by Michael Segal.
The story describes the discovery of ship that sank in the Mediterranean Sea during the 1930’s, which was carrying a precious cargo (the daughters of the Norwegian sea god Aegir)and was heading towards the Vatican City and departed from a Norwegian port in order to avoid the German nazis and the Italian fascists.
The vessel had left in secrecy and the legends which were born around the ship called MIORGAROSORMR, never wanted it to exist. The sinister fire that destroyed the norwegian harbor of Trondenheim after its leaving, erased any proof of its existence. What the two scuba-divers didn’t know, is that the ship was protected and guarded by a mythical Celtic creature, that may still be there. The tag line of the movie is: Some things belong to sea and should stay there.
The characters in the story are Mike (Michael Segal), fearless and comical in a mean way, Kevin (Roberto D’Antona), the diving centre’s calmest and most cautious staff member, Lisa (Flavia Sabatino), the joyful girlfriend of the partner who hates Mike because he acts as an obstacle between her marriage with Kevin, and an enigmatic sea-man with one eye named Hooper (David White), who seems like he knows more than it looks like, he could almost be the custodian of what the sea hides.
In the cast, with smaller roles, there are also Simone Modugno, Camelia Voiasciuc and Samuel Giraffi.
This is the first movie directed by Michael Segal, with the precious help of the awards winner Simone Modugno, documentary director and camera operator on the surface, underwater and drone pilot.
Acted out in English, with underwater equipment and filmed on board of a real sunken ship at Isola D’Elba, DARK BLUE challenges destiny, presenting a captivating story and unusual shots for the indie market. The genre is mystery/action and the lead actor Michael Segal (that is a stuntman as well) has been engaged in some dangerous scenes and fights. The movie will be present at the AFM, then at the Toronto Film Market and Berlin.
Made with the friendly participation of SML-SUB, IL BLUE DEL MARE, DANIELE RENT and the Diving Centre “IL CARENO”, DARK BLUE will also bring the spectator in the charming landscape of Elba, both outside and under water.
