9émes Rencontres Internationales du Cinéma des Antipodes
      Eagle Vs. Shark
Thursday 11, 17.00

She’s just off beautiful. He’s just off beat. Lily is the quiet, awkward loner who doesn’t fit in anywhere - but that could change. Jarrod is a warrior in his own world who thinks he’s brave and powerful and is blind to Lily’s adoration – but that could change. Lily crashes Jarrod’s party, ends up in his home town and lands a leading role in his hell bent plan to beat up an old high school bully. They tackle estranged family, stranger friends only to find the real foe may be in the mirror.

Eagle vs Shark delivers a poignant social punch about facing up to who you really are. It’s about accepting the good, the bad and the honest awful - and when that happens everything can change.
