Baths is a short animated film about two elderly swimmers in a public pool. It starts as a leisurely swim between friends and turns into a fierce contest between rivals. The deeper meaning of this short is down to the interpretation of the audience but is able to draw emotions from viewers despite the lack of exposition or dialogue. Baths has a unique and interesting animation style that works well with the rich sound design to aid storytelling. The visual style comes in two parts to represent realism and surrealism which makes the short all the more thoughtful.
