By the Pool

Maîtres nageurs

Directed by Karine Bélanger
Canada, 2016


We should see a swimming pool as a living being. From the perspective of the caretakers of an open whale that entertains several Jonahs in a pressing hot weather, we can see all the possibilities in fifteen minutes: the jokes, leisure as a profession and a reason for work, and danger.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
