The Last Goldfish

MA15+ | NFT Drama

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for The Last Goldfish at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

“Watching The Last Goldfish, we can’t help but be reminded of the repercussions of displacement and just what’s involved in putting the pieces back together again.” - RealTime

As a child growing up in Trinidad, Su didn't realise she was white. As an adult, she finds a new family in Sydney's queer community, learns she is Jewish and that she has half-siblings on the other side of the world. Told through a personal archive stretching across a century, this search for one lost family echoes through all those touched by forced migration.

An audience favourite at the Sydney Film Festival, The Last Goldfish presents a journey through memory and amnesia; via the Holocaust and calypso. An adventure of the heart revealing the complexity of ordinary lives, and what we gain from understanding who we are and where we come from.

 

Director, Su Goldfish, is a guest of the festival.
