“A Fish Tale” is an intimate documentary, filmed over the course of 10 years, about a family from Africa who moves to Israel, leaving two of their children behind. The husband believes in the future of Africa, so he dreams of returning one day to open a fish farm after an Israeli business owner teaches him how to do so free of charge.
In contrast, his wife sees little hope back home and is determined to create the best possible future for their children, whatever the price may be. When their Israeli visas expire, tensions between the two arise, leading to an inevitable clash. The film contrasts male and female narratives and raises ideas of choice versus fate.
View the film beginning June 15, followed by a virtual Q&A on June 21 with Israeli director Emmanuelle Mayer as part of Belmont World Film’s observance of World Refugee Awareness Month.
