Special Advance Screening

Following the first Shiny Shrimps film, this new chapter turns its spotlight on state-sponsored homophobia and hate crimes as well as Putin’s oppression of the LGBT community. Two years on water polo coach Matthias (Nicolas Gob) decides to take Selim (Bilal El Atreby), a youngster he believes to be gay, to the Gay Games in Tokyo along with the Shiny Shrimps. Missing their flight connection, they are grounded in remote Russia, the start of a crazy adventure mixed with musical comedy and lots of tight Speedos. Naturally the recent turn of events in Ukraine affected the cast and crew, many of whom were Ukrainian. 

A collection in aid of Ukrainian charities will be made at screenings.
