Pool by Boelsums, Mirjam & Scharenborg, Lony

The Dutch love to swim, whether it is to exercise, to relax or to just have a good time. Thanks to an extensive swimming schedule, pregnant ladies, little children, seniors and mentally disabled are all able to enjoy themselves in the Amsterdam swimming pool Marnixbad. The film vividly shows how every group of swimmers has its own flow, clearly visible in the chlorine infested water. The filmmakers even add an extra dimension to the film by using underwater equipment.
