An italian film company called Permanent Memories Entertainment has just released the new independent thriller: "Dark Blue" directed by Michael Segal. Below is the official press release.
“The story describes the discovery of a 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 Vatican City. It departed from a Norwegian port in order to avoid the German Nazis and the Italian fascists.
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), and an enigmatic sea-man with one eye named Hooper (David White), who seems like he knows more than he’s prepared to admit.
The cast also includes Simone Modugno, Camelia Voiasciuc and Samuel Giraffi.
This is the first movie directed by Michael Segal, with the help of award 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 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 (who is also a stuntman) engages in some dangerous scenes and fights. The movie will be presented at AFM, 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 draw the spectator into the charming landscape of Elba, both outside and under water.
