Charlie López | 12 MIN | Costa Rica
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.
Charlie López (San José, 1999) is a Costarican filmmaker and editor. He’s currently graduating from the Véritas Film School in San José, Costa Rica. “The Swimmers” is his first project outside of film school.
