The Pool
BY
Sara Jordenö

The Pool has the format of a compilation film and film essay. The film tells the stories about two cases of erasure – the US bombings in Afghanistan and Iraq and the destruction of an outdoor pool in cold-war Moscow, where homosexual women were cruising each other. The pool is now gone and only exists through memory of a woman that once visited it. Similarly, we learn about the bombings in the Middle East through visit at the place of their simulation: a test bombsite in the Californian desert. Constantly shifting between locations and their meditations, the film never visits the ‘real’ place.
