In Swedish director Niclas Larsson’s debut short Vatten, a lonely girl discovers a mysterious unconditional love during a late night swim. Niclas joins us to discuss getting his feet wet with underwater filming and his use of ‘silent takes’ to expunge unnecessary dialogue during the edit.
Clara enjoys swimming by herself in the local pool after dark. One night she discovers a secret in this haunting story of young love.
