Video of the Day: Aquadettes

Everyone don your bathing caps, preferably those with shiny tassels on top, for this short film. Aquadettes is a beautiful mini-documentary about 75-year old Margo Bouer and the synchronized swim club at Laguna Woods Village of which she is a part. In the charmingly shot and poignant film, the latest by Zackary Canepari and Drea Cooper of California is a Place, Bouer talks about her experiences dealing with aging, multiple sclerosis, medicinal marijuana, independence and pointing her toes in the water. It’s a sweet and thought-provoking piece that also kind of makes us want to take up synchronized swimming as a lifetime investment. Much more practical than tennis, no?
