SYNOPSIS

Loosely based on Ed Ruscha’s photography book “Nine Swimming Pools and a Broken Glass”, this is an essay about swimming pools: the ideas we have of them and what they can mean for the culture and collective memories.
A playful exploration between class dilemmas, work, leisure, sex, and tragedy.
