We the Bathers

A film by Phoebe Arnstein


We the Bathers is a visually beautiful and emotive short documentary featuring fourteen people across the globe. Each story and person is unique, but they share one common connection. Water.

Commissioned by Lush and directed by Phoebe Arnstein, the film explores personal bathing rituals and the deeper meaning humanity attaches to these intimate moments. Touching on social issues such as racism, depression, homelessness, immigration and prostitution, We The Bathers shows how water gives us space to reflect, renew and relax.

The film crosses cultures and continents to find the many reasons why humans love to bathe.

Viewers are advised that We the Bathers joins people in their most private moments and therefore contains scenes of a sensitive nature and are partial to full nudity.

Photography Exhibition at Lush Studio, 67–71 Beak Street, Soho, London. All are welcome from 1pm 21st June–12th July, Weekdays 10am–5pm. Film screening every 20 minutes. Free entry.
