The Last Goldfish documents a daughter’s search for her lost family. Rich with archival images, this suspenseful and surprising story – stretching from Australia to Trinidad, North America to WWII Germany – reveals the impact of war and displacement across generations. Manfred Goldfish tries as hard as he can to hide the trauma he has experienced. But his filmmaker daughter suspects there is more to the Goldfish tale than her father is willing to reveal. A gripping and deeply moving story of one person’s search for the story of her life.
Su Goldfish is producer and manager of UNSW Creative Practice Lab in the School of the Arts and Media. Su produces performance and media works, mentors’ students, and collaborates with academic staff and artists.
Su facilitated a project for UNSW that adapted three of artist William Yang’s performance works into screen-based works. Su was co-producer of My Generation, Blood Links, and Friends of Dorothy, all of which screened on ABC1 and in film festivals locally and internationally.
Su studied documentary at AFTRS (2010) and has worked for 25 years as a performer, writer, filmmaker, and producer.
