A Fish Tale

Directed by Emmanuelle Mayer

Produced by Emmanuelle Mayer and Noam Pinchas

Johnny lives in Israel, but dreams of returning to Ghana with new knowledge of modern fish-farming.

His wife, Thérèse, sees little future for their children in Africa. When their visas expire, tensions rise, leading to an inevitable clash.

Emmanuelle Mayer’s directorial debut is a moving documentary portrait, pieced out of ten years of intimate footage. Emphasizing the profound gap between developing Africa and the West, the film contrasts male and female narratives and raises ideas of choice versus fate.
