  • Košice - European Capital of Culture 2013


    The documentary film 66 SEASONS about the Old Swimming Pool in Košice, where the history came to bathe, was made over the summer seasons 2000 to 2002. Seen through several stories which unfolded between the years 1936 and 2002, the film captures 66 seasons at the popular swimming pool, and also the same number of years in the history of Central and Eastern Europe. The film is supported by the reminiscences of several visitors to the “Čéháčko”, as the pool was known, which the film crew try to reconstruct years later. The swimming pool thus acquires another metaphysical dimension – it resembles a model of the world where, with greater intensity, private stories merge with universal history.  Different generations of swimmers replaced one another over the course of the decades, only the craving for water as a place of absolute equality and also a source of security remains just as strong.
