Black Water

Directed by: Andrew Traucki & David Nerlich

Three young holidaymakers take a fishing tour in Northern Australia.

As they drift into a mangrove swamp their boat is suddenly capsized and their tour guide disappears. Realising they have been attacked by a crocodile they swim for the nearest tree in a flooded mangrove swamp.

To survive they must elude the crocodile and reclaim their overturned boat.

Based on true events “Black Water” walks the line between horror and psychological thriller – a terrifying tale of true survival.
