WARM WATER is a short film made in collaboration with Koen van der Kam during the sixth semester at St.Joost School of Art & Design.

In WARM WATER, Nathan steps out of his comfort zone by inviting Yael to his home. Insecurities about masculinity and assumptions he has about the expectations of romantic partners create tension during the date.
