The Sharks (Los Tiburones)
Director Lucía Garibaldi makes her debut with The Sharks (Los Tiburones), an Uruguyan-Argentinean co-production produced by Pancho Magnou Arnabal and Melanie Schapiro. Arriving in 2019 with a lot of fanfare, the winner of the Film-in-Progress Industry Award out of the San Sebastian Film Festival in 2018, the feature stars Antonella Aquistapache, Fabian Arenillas, Romina Bentancur, Valerie Lois and Federico Morosini. German Nocella (Neptunia, 2017) lensed the feature.
Gist: Garibaldi’s script follows a teenager working at a seaside resort, and seems to be the only person in town oblivious to the fact sharks have been gathering on the coastline.
Release Date/Prediction: The Sharks will compete in the World Cinema Dramatic competition at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
