Goldfish Memory (2003) is a feature film about everyday relationships, set and filmed in Dublin. It was written and directed by Elizabeth Gill.
The movie is set around a small group of characters experiencing relationships which build and crumble before the viewers eyes. The title of the film refers to the belief, expressed by several of characters, that the goldfish retains a memory of something for only three seconds. The narrator of the film draws comparisons between this and the human tendency to jump from one relationship to the next, "forgetting" the pain that any previous one might have caused. The film shows complexities involved in straight relationships but exposes the gay and lesbian twist to love as well. Writer/director Liz Gill says the film was influenced by the work of directors Robert Altman and Richard Linklater. Particularly Linklater's film Slacker.
