Following the unexplainable sinking of an American nuclear submarine, a civilian oil-platform crew is called to assist with a deep-sea government search-and-rescue mission. Soon enough the crew starts to suspect they are dealing with more than a sea maneuver gone wrong. One diver (Ed Harris) finds himself on a spectacular odyssey 25,000 feet below the ocean’s surface where he confronts a mysterious force that seems to have intentions for Earth and its inhabitants. At the time, The Abyss was one of the most expensive films ever made with a budget of $70 million. It went on to take home the Oscar® for Best Visual Effects in 1990. This screening will be the original theatrical version. (Digital Presentation)IU Academic Diving Program instructor Chloe Strauss' introduction will discuss deep-water exploration use of mixed gases and experiments with breathing oxygenated liquids due to density of breathing gases at depths impossible for human lungs.
