OCCUPY THE POOL
Participate in the making of this feature film in its post-production phase.
Imagined as an immersion and a perambulation within a group, the film is committed to describe the micro relationships that weave between the characters, the way they live together, in order to draw the contours of a generation in pursuit of a collective narrative.
Born between 1983 and 1991, all the non professional actors of this film were being followed by director, Kim Seob Boninsegni since 2010. Some of them participated in shows and choreographies that Kim had made before. OCCUPY THE POOL is a film about how young people live together, how they party and share intimate moments on a daily basis. These relationships based on friendship and trust between the actors and the director are what made the film possible. It allowed the full potential of the performances.
Profil of the crew
Mixing actors from the realms of the contemporary art scene and cinema, the crew from OCCUPY THE POOL gathered people with proven skills such as, Gabriel Lobos, Christian Mathis, Guillaume Hurmic, Barab Haidra and allowed them to work with a younger generation coming, for the most part, from the contemporary art scene (Manon Vila, Dorine Aguerre). Working with all these different profils allowed a great potential for the making of this film.
Before studying visual arts, Kim Seob Boninsegni had been a student of cinema in Geneva. This allowed him to embrace a large field of creation. Putting all his experience gathered from the making of exhibitions, performance shows, writing, teaching and the relationships he developed with the actors allowed him tho make this film.
“ Positioning itself on the borderlines of cinema, OCCUPY THE POOL is a weird project that began in 2013. Made as a fiction, but with nonprofessional actors, the film was thought, like a structure allowing the camera to glide and follow moments that were scripted beforehand. It is about an experience of a group of people, which their only occupation seems to be finding the next party to go to. “
OFFSHORE is a small production structure interested by the borderlines of cinema. It gathers both people from the contemporary art scene and cinema.
