Discover the incredible true story of James Cameron’s record-breaking ocean voyage to the deepest part of planet, the Challenger Deep in the western Pacific Ocean.
While he is known as one of the greatest filmmakers of our time, James Cameron has also lived a parallel, and equally successful, life as a deep-sea explorer. For the first time, Pressure reveals the full story of Cameron’s 2012 DEEPSEA CHALLENGE Expedition and remarkable, record-breaking dive to the Challenger Deep, the deepest place on the planet, deeper than Mount Everest is high. Pressure provides a unique insight into Cameron through his personal emails to the team he assembled to build the DEEPSEA CHALLENGER, his game-changing, vertical, bright green submersible. Also featuring Cameron’s personal dive journals and other previously unseen materials, Pressure takes a candid and revealing look at the drive, vision, and talent for technical innovation that has allowed Cameron to become one of the world’s foremost explorers. Culminating in Cameron’s tense, heart-stopping journey to the Challenger Deep 35,787' down into the depths, Pressure is the definitive account of the remarkable innovation, carefully calculated risk, and ultimate triumph that led to one of the greatest moments in the history of deep-sea exploration.
