CREATIVE SHORT

Beltrán Gonzalez and Luca Werner direct ‘Pools’.

Born from the desire to keep something that is fading in front of us; jumping with friends as circles change fast. You are caught in a rhythm underwater. It helps to isolate everything around.

  • Beltrán Gonzalez and Luca Werner explore the escapism found underwater, preserving the memory of pools connected to their youth NOWNESS

Filmed in Barcelona, Spain.
