Why would James Cameron, world-renowned, award-winning filmmaker, put his very life on the line to dive alone to the deepest place on Earth? What kind of passion and drive and spirit would impel him to risk everything he has achieved to descend to the ocean's darkest and most unknown depths?
James Cameron is no ordinary man. Already the world's best known and most successful filmmaker, Cameron is also a passionate ocean explorer, driven by a lifelong dream to be the first man to dive solo to the bottom of the forbidding and mysterious Mariana Trench. As deep as Mount Everest with a lesser Alp stacked on top, the trench is the ultimate last frontier on Earth, and James Cameron was determined to make it there alive--and back.
Deepsea Challenge follows the dramatic story of Cameron's personal odyssey as he undertakes an expedition of such historic proportion and risk that it has been compared to putting a man on the moon. Deepsea Challenge will mesmerize viewers of all ages with the thrill of true discovery and the allure of the unknown, of new life forms, and of vistas never before captured on camera--and all right here on planet Earth.
