Come join director Sarolta Jane Cump and actor Annie Danger, who plays the salmon, in a screening and discussion of The Gold Fish Casino.

The Gold Fish Casino Film follows the queer journey of a plucky Salmon playing for high stakes in the Water Wars. At The Gold Fish Casino, The Salmon must gamble her eggs for high stakes: enough clean water to get home and spawn. On her journey she encounters a queer menagerie, and transforms from a sweet naïve fish into a bold powerful force. Rife with double entendre, musical numbers and stunning visuals, The Gold Fish Casino engages the audience with Water politics using archetypal characters, musical numbers and humor.


In addition to the film, we will hear from Sarolta about the making of the film and the queer, film, and environmental theory behind the film.

 

The Gold Fish Casino screening is brought to you by CREGS, the Center for Research and Education on Gender and Sexuality.
