Baño de vida / Bath of life from CCCMexico on Vimeo.
It´s a immersive documentary which guides us for an intimate journey to the inner life of a public bath through the voices of three characters: Felipe, the main clerk since 1984, Juana a street sweeper from Mexico City’s and Jose, a frequent client who has been gone to the baths for more than forty years. This documentary becomes a confessionary for those who gather around in the same place: the sauna. Each character shares it’s own past, what the baths means to them. We get a glimpse of their lives while they take just another bath.
