When mermaids Golden and Silver wash up in Warsaw they are adopted into the cabaret at a local strip club. Golden is happy to feast on the unsuspecting humans but when Silver falls in love with a member of the house band, she risks their dream of swimming to America to start a new life. Kitsch, surreal, anarchic and unashamedly feminist, this dark musical comedy horror is the antithesis of Disney’s The Little Mermaid. Accompanied on Mon 14 by Kindil (Damien Ounouri, Algeria / Kuwait / USA, 2016, 41’), a harrowing fantasy drama also based on the mermaid myth, about a mother lynched to death while swimming offshore.
