Chicago LGBTQ+ Film Festival 2022 Opening Film : The Shiny Shrimps Strike Back
3733 N Southport Avenue
Chicago, US 60613
Three years after France’s rag tag rainbow water polo team hilariously broke down the walls of homophobia, it’s time to dive back into the pool with this endearing crew. Still recovering from the death of their teammate Jean, the Shrimps are heading to the Gay Games in Tokyo, but end up stranded deep in one of the most homophobic regions in the world: Russia!
