synopsis
Fish Boy is a teenager facing the challenges of growing up. His problems are especially severe, as he is different from all others: He is half boy, half fish. His drama is set against the background of a seemingly idyllic fishing village, where is father wants to teach him how to become a fisherman. The boy's struggle with the stigma of rejection takes place in several dimensions of interpersonal relationships. Ultimately, it also affects Fish Boy's relationship with himself.

filmmaker's note
"Ziegenort" is the story of the small fisher village in an alternative reality where World War II never happened. All beings in the village, humans and animals alike, live under the law of nature. A father is trying to prepare his son to live as a fisherman. I wanted to create a kind of myth which includes beings that surround me and are close to me, to rediscover the meaning of symbols like sun, eagle, fish. I intended to create a realistic portrait of the anxiety one feels as a teenager growing up, and to mix the atmosphere of sunny holidays with a certain cruelty of the world, the beauty and the horror of nature
