JAGO: A LIFE UNDERWATER is the story of Rohani, an 80-year-old hunter who dives like a fish on a single breath, descending to great depths for several minutes. Set against the spectacular backdrop of the Togian Islands in Indonesia where he grew up, this award-winning film recreates events that capture the extraordinary turning points in his life, as a hunter and as a man. Through a mixture of interviews and cinematic re-enactments, the film charts Pak Rohani's extraordinary life; learning to dive, losing his son and coming to terms with his own mortality. The film also follows a story on the use of marine resources and the effect of wider changes on indigenous communities.
