About this project
Adolescence is a difficult time for everyone, and if you deviate from the societal standards of high school, the alienation that follows can be a punishment in the strictest sense. Having to ignore the questions within you—questions about desire, sexual orientation, or the voice of authority—howling questions that no one ‘normal’ seems to have, can be tortuous. I aspire to meditate on this, the terror and loneliness of being young, in my short coming-of-age film, Fish Tank. This film will also serve as my senior Honors Project at Bowling Green State University.
Rowan, a quiet and shy 15-year-old, escapes into a secluded bedroom during a party. There, he is inadvertently joined by Andrew, a fellow classmate and object of Rowan's affection. Over a shared soda can of pilfered vodka, the two young men drift through moments of awkwardness and intimate conversation.
Fish Tank reflects on the painful, silent oblivion that inhabits teenagers who cannot submit to high school status quos.
The funds raised will cover the most essential part of the Fish Tank budget: buying and processing the film stock. To see an exact budget breakdown and where exactly your contribution is fitting in, click here.
