The Pool

USA, 95mins. Dir. Chris Smith

Venkatesh, a “room boy” works at a hotel in Panjim, Goa. From his perch in a mango tree, he spots a luxuriant garden and shimmering pool hidden behind a wall. In making whatever efforts he can to better himself, Venkatesh offers his services to the wealthy owner of the home. Not content to simply dream about a different life, Venkatesh is inquisitive about the home’s inhabitants-indeed about the world around him-and his curiosity changes the shape of his future.
