Go Fish

25th Anniversary

Dir. Rose Troche, United States, 1994, 84 mins

Opposites attract in this New Queer Cinema staple that defined ’90s lesbian zeitgeist. Camille ‘Max’ West (GUINEVERE TURNER, CHARLIE SAYS, and THE L WORD) is a tony young lesbian living in Chicago. Despite being a part of a robust queer scene, Max can’t seem to find a girlfriend who meets her impossibly high standards. Enter: Ely (V.S. Brodie), a dowdy tea-drinker on the periphery of Max’s social circle. Initially written off, Ely’s granola ways eventually charm Max, who begins to reassess her queer rules of attraction.

Filled to the brim with timeless subcultural commentary on everything from bisexuality to coming out, Rose Troche’s freewheeling GO FISH was made by a motley crew of friends and lovers who wanted to push the lesbian film canon beyond DESERT HEARTS. Its endurance is a testament to the power of D.I.Y. filmmaking, queer subjectivity, and the backwards ballcap.

Writers: Rose Troche, Guinevere Turner
Cast: Guinevere Turner, V.S. Brodie
