Miss Pisces is a short film that challenges the male gaze through a femme, horoscopic lens. Featuring a Pisces-born muse, Pheroza (an Iranian/Indian/Australian non-binary sex-worker and model), the audience witnesses a suspenseful interaction between a fish shop sales assistant and an obtrusive customer. The writer and director, Gianna Mazzeo, takes viewers to a surreal realm that operates somewhere between reality and a dream. The film celebrates absurdity, surrealism and grotesqueness, revealing beauty in spaces often overlooked. Miss Pisces (2018) is one of twelve films from a Melbourne-based film series called ‘Calendar Girls’ commissioned by Amy Dellar.
Gianna Mazzeo is a queer Italian-Australian writer, director and filmmaker based between Melbourne and Amsterdam. She writes within the genres of drama and black comedy, telling stories about the environment, her culture, sexuality and the female experience. She started her film journey in her teens as a video rental sales assistant then studied a Bachelor of Communications (Media) majoring in Cinema Studies at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.
