Lifeguards run down the beach and dive into the ocean to save swimmers from drowning. These dramatic rescues are captured by a hyperactive, spinning camera that becomes one with the elements and challenges how subjective a documentary may be.

    5 Shorts Project
    2016 4 editions
    Launched by the NFB’s French Documentary Studio, the 5 Shorts Project seeks to discover new filmmaking talent from Quebec’s regions while exploring the short-form doc genre. Five directors are challenged to create a 4-to-5-minute short with a technical requirement. These independent, individual films will benefit from the cohort’s constructive reflection and interaction.
