The GoldfishThe Goldfish                   10min

This film is an adaptation of Etgar Keret’s famed short story ‘What Of This Goldfish Would You Wish?’ in which a young man named Yoni (Jason Ritter) sets out to make a documentary about the secret longings of everyday Americans. By knocking on strangers doors and asking them this question: ‘If you had a magic goldfish that granted you three wishes, what of this goldfish would you wish?’ Yoni thinks he will discover the hopes, dreams and greatest wishes of his fellow citizens. But Yoni is not prepared when he meets an elderly immigrant named Sergei who we learn has been wrestling with the exact same question for years and is desperate not to lose his old friend– a beautiful talking goldfish (Lucy Punch).

3Days in Havana3 days in Havana                   82min

An Insurance executive attending a convention in Cuba has his world turned upside down when he gets caught up in an assassination plot. Taking the advice of a mysterious woman, Jack Petty skips the conference and takes in the sights of Havana instead. Brushing off a fortune teller’s warning of impending danger, he befriends Harry Smith, a fun loving travel writer with a taste for cigars, rum and trouble. Harry takes Jack under his wing and out for a day and night of adventure. Along the way they meet Pepe the Frenchman, who can get you anything you want and Night & Day, two beautiful women who put the femme in fatale. Jack wakes up the next morning to discovers a dead man in a bathtub and a stranger at the door who mistakenly gives Jack a gun and instructions to kill. Things go from bad to worse when Jack beelines to the Canadian embassy only to learn he can’t trust anyone. With nowhere to turn and nothing but danger in his path, Jack needs to stay one step ahead of them to get out of Cuba alive. Inspired by Antonioni, Hitchcock and the Coen Brothers, 3 Days in Havana is an homage to the hard-boiled thrillers of the seventies that will keep you guessing until the final frame.
