The VITO Project is delighted to present Go Fish, a 1994 American film written by Guinevere Turner and Rose Troche and directed by Rose Troche

Go Fish,” traces the romantic and political ups and downs of a group of Chicago lesbians in the 1990s . Sharply observed and full of surprising charms, Go Fish, refreshingly, is not dealing with coming out. Instead, the point of departure of writers Troche and Turner is that women can — and do — live emotionally fulfilling lives in lesbian communities, without being stigmatised or penalised. Small in scale, but full of truthful insights, “Go Fish” is charged with a fierce intelligence about how lesbians actually live. It is widely considered to be one of the milestones of lesbian cinema.

The screening will be followed by an open discussion with Joanne Garwood and Marguerite McLaughlin.

Doors to the cafe/bar will open at 6pm for a 7pm screening. Come early to secure a seat as it can get very busy and we do not take bookings. The doors to the Cinema will be shut once capacity is reached. 

This is a free screening but £5 donations at the door are encouraged as donations are our only source of funding.
