The Shiny Shrimps + Q&A

This screening will be introduced by directors Maxime Govare and Cédric Le Gallo and actors Geoffrey Couët and Romain Brau, and followed by a post-film Q&A. Due to their undisciplined behaviour (in and out of the pool), Parisian water polo team THE SHINY SHRIMPS have little hope of achieving their goal to compete in the world’s biggest LGBTQ+ sporting event - the upcoming Gay Games in Croatia. Jean the team captain needs a coach with exceptional motivational abilities to whip the shrimps into shape. After making a homophobic remark on live TV, World Silver Medalist swimmer Matthias Le Goff is offered redemption by means of training and reigning in the flamboyant Shrimps. As the Shrimps clearly prefer partying to practice and poolside spectacle to in pool strategy, Matthias is forced to reconsider his professional and personal priorities. Should he quit for selfish reasons or hit the road to Croatia with this ragtag bunch of misfits and ensure that THE SHINY SHRIMPS remain QUEENS OF THE POOL?
