‚Äč

 

The film is a short poetic documentary about an outdoor public bath called Gamlingen. The film is based on a poem by Tor Obrestad, a famous Norwegian author who used the place for many years.

 

The film is homage to all places and social settings in the world were it all merges into a classless, cross aged, equal and free place. Places like these are vital in many people lives.

 

After 58 years of service Gamlingen was torn down giving space to roadworks.
