The Palace
NR 52 minDocumentary
Sundhöll Reykjavíkur (The Reykjavík Swimming Palace), the city’s first swimming pool, was inaugurated in 1937. The building is an architectural landmark, which for decades has functioned as a cornerstone for the elderly that live in the neighbourhood, and other daily guests. The documentary captures the atmosphere of the building by focusing on the daily routine and the colourful characters that frequent the pool. It documents an era that is coming to an end and pays tribute to disappearing generations.
