They Found 67 People Who Had Never Jumped Off A High Dive Tower. What They Captured Is Fascinating
The filmmakers behind the popular film at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival "Ten Meter Tower" sought to capture people facing a difficult decision, to make a portrait of humans in doubt.
For this psychology experiment, documentary filmmakers Maximilien Van Aertryck and Axel Danielson found 67 people who had never been on a high dive tower before, and had never jumped from that high.
"We paid each of them the equivalent of about $30 to participate — which meant climbing up to the diving board and walking to its edge. We were as interested in the people who decided to climb back down as the ones jumping."
