The Swimming Pool was developed over the course of a two-year domestic ethnographic research involving many travels to Southern Spain. In an attempt to find what it means to practice care, Carmen Dusmet Carrasco developed an obsession with capturing her mother’s precarious journey towards retirement. What began as a socio-economic study of female poverty in Spain led to an intimate negotiation of a mother-daughter relationship. Projecting the imagination of a younger generation onto a future that is unfolding, the film is an intergenerational prism. In its rawness, it unapologetically poses a confessional question: How can younger generations take care of the elderly while safeguarding their own future?
