Teen Angst - Saitama Style

And so we put goldfish in the pool. /そうして私たちはプールに金魚を、  

And so we put goldfish in the pool.

Director/Writer:Makoto Nagahisa


!!!The Short Film Grand Jury Prize in Sundance!!!


This is a true story which took place in Saitama in 2012.

In the summer of 2012, 400 goldfish were released in the swimming pool of a junior-high school in Sayama Town, Saitama. The culprits: four female students.

According to the Police statement, the girls “thought the fish would look pretty”. But why did they really do it?

Based on a true story, this fast-paced short film continually betrays the viewer’s expectations as it explores the feelings of the four girls and their motives, accompanied by a soundtrack of old-time hits including Seventeen and Virgin Blues!
