We the Bathers is a visually beautiful and emotive short documentary featuring fourteen people across the globe. Each story and person is unique, but they share one common connection. Water.

Commissioned by Lush and directed by Phoebe Arnstein, the film explores personal bathing rituals and the deeper meaning humanity attaches to these intimate moments. Touching on social issues such as racism, depression, homelessness, immigration and prostitution, We The Bathers shows how water gives us space to reflect, renew and relax.

The film crosses cultures and continents to find the many reasons why humans love to bathe.
