Take a look at this new drama short, where Kentish Town Sports Centre (aka the restored historic Prince of Wales Baths) is the setting for a darkly humorous tale of swimming pool lane etiquette.
It is written and directed by Alexander Osman, who you might remember for his hugely popular docudrama that we featured a couple of years ago, This Little Place in Gospel Oak, which peers into the unique, magical realm of Kristen Baybars’ longstanding Mansfield Road toy emporium.
In this new film, Alex explores his own experiences of public swimming pool training sessions via the story of Michael, a man struggling to comprehend a triggered memory with his psychiatrist, and his delusional view on what is really happening under the water in the congested fast lane.
Beneath The Surface has featured at a number of festivals in the UK and internationally. Have a watch and then let us know what you think via the new emoji system and comments below.
