GO FISH 35mm d. Rose Troche, 1994 (09 FEB 20:40) / Part of BIG SCREEN CLASSICS: LGBT HISTORY MONTH at BFI Southbank.

“A big hit at the Sundance Film Festival and made on a shoe-string budget, the groundbreaking Go Fish arrived at the tail-end of the New Queer Cinema movement. A film that finally centred the narrative around modern lesbian lives in all their messy, romantic glory, Go Fish has become a true lesbian classic, and is just as refreshing now as it was in the early 90s.” (BFI)
