Go Fish in 4K

Special guest: Post-screening conversation with writer, director Rose Troche.

West Coast Restoration Premiere

Lesbian college student Max (Guinevere Turner) is let down by the current state of her love life. Her roommate Kia (T. Wendy McMillan) devises a ruse to get Max on a date with Ely (V.S. Brodie), an older lesbian Max initially disregards. As Max and Ely find themselves drawn to each other, Max realizes Ely isn’t as available as she thought. Go Fish was one of the first films made following B. Ruby Rich’s 1992 article owing its genesis to the piece and to the frustration of the lack of lesbian representation during this pivotal time in queer independent cinema.
