The bathers and divers, the water and the building, hustle and hush. Stylised impression of the Dordrecht swimming pool Aquapulca, shortly before it was demolished.

Determined, the camera follows the manager on his round of a deserted swimming pool. In the same calm tempo, isolated images emerge that show how the bathers used to enjoy themselves here and disturb the water. The humming of the water treatment system is the soundtrack for this experimental portrait of a small world. This stylised impression was shot in the Aquapulca pool in Dordrecht, shortly before it was demolished.
