FINLAND -- Johanna Nordblad is the world record holder among female free divers. She swam to a depth of 50 metres and was submerged for six and a half minutes with no breathing gear. She will be featured in a new documentary highlighting people who take on the four elements: fire, earth, air and water, Finnish YLE reports.

Two years ago she racked up the women’s world record for free diving by venture 50 metres under the ice, without a wetsuit or flippers. She remained submerged for six minutes and 35 seconds. How did she do it?

"Humans have a dive reflex, just like other marine mammals. If a person holds her breath on the surface, the pulse rate will begin to rise. However under water, the pulse rate slows. Your organs calm down, blood flow to the extremities slows and centres on the brain and internal organs."

Johanna Nordblad is featuring in a new documentary, directed by the makers of "Tale of a Lake" a documentary about Finnish lakes. The new feature is called "The Four Elements" and examines the elements through the experiences of the main characters.

In the film, Nordblad is on her way to dive in Finland with cameraman Teemu Liakka, who documents what it looks and feels like to dive under the ice.

"It’s beautiful and quiet down there. There’s no one to disturb you and I can be alone," Nordblad said.
