Silver fish



Cheeky Magpie
Heather Davies, Lally Cadeau, Kim Horsman, Roy Lewis

Two stories intertwined around one image (a silvery sardine), Silverfish explores confinement, community and travel. The first story is about a young Vietnamese woman, Khanh, arriving in a small fishing town in New Brunswick to start work at the sardine-packing plant. The second story is of Gerhard Gruzintsky, a young Angolan man, who stows away in the undercarriage of an airplane. His frozen body is found with only a mobile phone, no ID, no passport. Sue, the women who finds him, is haunted by his death and arranges for a number of community groups to hold memorials for him.
