The quiet atmosphere at a small beach resort is rattled by the suspicion of an unheard-of shark invasion, which alarms the locals. fourteen-year-old Rosina, the middle child of three siblings, has no friends, and her exchanges with the world only consist of monosyllables and the occasional short phrase. She thinks she saw something in the water, but no one seems to be paying much attention to her. Her family is more concerned about their tight economic situation, work, and the approaching summer season. When her father recruits her to do maintenance work at some summer houses around town, she meets Joselo, a slightly older fisherman.

Among dirty swimming pools, pompous gardens and deserted beaches, Rosina experiences something new: a desire to bridge the distance between her body and Joselo's. But the feeling is hardly mutual. To get his attention, she comes up with a convoluted, poorly planned strategy, going about it stealthily and menacingly, as if inspired by the mysterious predators.

Director Biography

Uruguayan filmmaker Lucía Garibaldi wrote and directed her debut-feature, The Sharks. The film made its world premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival where it won a Directing Award.


"The female gaze burns in The Sharks, a simmering hormonal cauldron of early-adolescent emotional isolation in which a 14-year-old teen's efforts to navigate the unfamiliar waters of sexual attraction trigger dark impulses within her." - Hollywood Reporter
