Director Statement

Goldfish was filmed in Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico and it is a minimalist film that plays with the idea of simplifying a narrative and the visuals as much as possible without losing meaning. It is an unconventional narrative where symbols and sound carry the hint of a story, half hidden in plain view.
