Sometime in the 1980s, Caspar Salmon’s grandmother was invited to a gathering on the Welsh island of Anglesey, attended exclusively by people with fish surnames. Or so he says. Thirty years later, filmmaker Charlie Lyne attempts to sort myth from reality as he searches for the truth behind this fishy tale.
Charlie Lyne is a writer and filmmaker best known for the feature-length essay films Beyond Clueless and Fear Itself. He is also the director of a number of shorts and the ten-hour protest film Paint Drying. His work has screened at festivals including Sundance, SXSW and Rotterdam.
