Film Info

A not-quite-coming-of-age short film about a boy, his dad, a bottle of vinegar and a Mermaid.

Gilligan is 15. He’s into epistolary novels and psychoanalysis. His Mum has died, and in an effort to connect with a son he doesn’t understand, his Dad has taken him on a crummy beachside holiday. All Gill wants is some peace and quiet, but he gets more than he bargained for when he meets a Mermaid named Rose. Now, Gill wants Rose. And Rose wants… legs.

Part of the short film program “Aussie Shorts – Take 2“ on Saturday, 28 September 2019, at 8:00pm. 


Director Madeleine Gottlieb’s second short Snare screened at SXSW 2019 and Tribeca Film Festival 2019.
