Swimming-gang

Short film, 16 min, 2017
Blue camping chairs

Swimming-gang is a short documentary about a group of people who find each other for a brief moment. All conditions are favorable and they end up spending one summer together, mainly by going swimming. When the summer ends everyone goes their own way and the gang disappears. It was like an alignment of planets: something rare and ephemeral.

Video consists of documental footage of that summer and interviews with the members of so-called swimming-gang. By looking back to the summer of 2015 there is a lot of talk about friendships, weakening of bonds and reasons for it.
