The Sharks

26/09/19, 22:15, DANAOS 1



In a seaside town, as rumours about sharks in open water start to spread out of control, a young girl finds herself navigating the uncharted waters of her desire for a young man. This evocative debut which won the Directing Award at the Sundance Film Festival sheds a discreet light on the obsessions and violent impulses of puberty in the shadow of a lingering threat.


URUGUAY, ARGENTINA, SPAIN | 2019 | COLOR | DCP | 83' | SPANISH

A seaside area in Urugay. Rosina is an introverted wild child in the awkward and constructive puberty. She accompanies her father’s workers to beautification of places. She falls in love with Joselo but their moment is ruined by her ignorance and his manners. At the same time, the area is upset by a rumour about the presence of sharks.

A deliberately non dramatic, symbolist and allegorical difficult exercise on racial difference, sex and emancipation. In an environment where the beautifully shot natural scenery is paralleled
and antithetical to the psychology of the heroes the radio talks and synth pop music complete the atmosphere, Lucia Garibaldi creates a debut about the hard aspect of sexual awakening as well as the silent anxiety about identity seeking. Award for Best Direction at Sundance. I.D.
