Bath of life 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. As the documentary draws on we become aware of their joys and fears, what makes them anxious and what aches in them. We get a glimpse of their lives while they take just another bath.
