Description

Winner of the Audience Award at the Sydney Film Festival, Su Goldfish’s film takes us on an emotionally moving journey into her family’s past. From Germany to Trinidad, Australia to Canada, her family history is a sweeping tale of displacement and resettlement. Through a personal archive of home movies and photographs, she pieces together the threads of her father’s life, uncovering surprising revelations along the way, including the fact that her father was married before and that she has half siblings living halfway across the world. The Last Goldfish underscores a universal need to know who we are and where we come from.
