Sixty-five years later, director Yaron Zilberman meets the members of the women's swim team in their homes around the world, and arranges for them to have a reunion in their old swimming pool in Vienna, a journey that evokes memories of youth, femininity, and strengthens lifelong bonds. Told by the swimmers, now in their eighties, Watermarks is about a group of young girls with a passion to be the best. It is the saga of seven outstanding athletes who still swim daily as they age with grace.
Watermarks visits Trude (Platcek) Hirschler, the Israeli co-chairperson of Hakoah veterans' organization; Elisheva (Schmidt) Susz, a renowned child psychotherapist from Tel-Aviv; Hanni (Deutsch) Lux who tells the story of her sister, Judith (Deutsch) Haspel, Austria's greatest swimmer who paid dearly for her refusal to compete in the 1936 Olympics in Nazi Berlin; Greta (Wertheimer) Stanton, a professor of sociology from New-Jersey; the elegant Ann-Marie (Pick) Pisker from London; Anni (Wagner) Lampl from LA who despite being visually impaired insisted on joining this reunion; and Nanne (Winter) Selinger, from New York, who was the only swimmer to return to live in Vienna; she left when Kurt Waldheim was elected president.blog comments powered by Disqus
