FISH - A Short Film


The Story

Fish is the story of two men, one old and one young, and the struggles they reach trying to deal with cross-generational communication and values. Through short vignettes and a central poker game we meet these characters and learn their individual fears and motives.

The Impact

We believe this project will have an impact on both the contributor and the wider audience. We view Fish as a carefully crafted, evocative work that can have real meaning to many people.
