Director Statement

I am intrigued by how women deal with power. In this short film Rina discovers she has a magical ability to teleport (or "pool hop") through water at a smarmy music promoter's penthouse pool. When she is thrown into a completely new space, she is frustrated and terrified, but must come to terms with it. "Chlorine" dissects body and self acceptance issues, which are exacerbated at the pool for many young women. Through Rina, we see her arc to self-reliance. As she gets progressively more lost, she learns to trust her body and make her own choices. In the final scene, she is calm and serene, at peace with her self and in control of her surroundings.
I've been working on "Chlorine" for over 6 years. The idea came to me when I visited a walk-in pool art exhibit at Moma PS1. Standing inside the pool you could see a layer of water above your head. I thought - what if you could teleport after flipping 3 times in a row underwater?

In 2017 I created a spec version using a knockoff go-pro and a few friends. It was awarded Jury Selection in the James River Film Festival in my then hometown, Richmond, VA. Stripped down to a narration over a few disconnected images of bodies, it became clear the story had something to it. I moved to New York in 2019 specifically to make this version of "Chlorine", collaborating with amazing artists, actors and crew to bring it to life.
