Directed by Rob Stewart
For filmmaker Rob Stewart, exploring sharks began as an underwater adventure. What it turned into was a beautiful and dangerous life journey into the balance of life on earth. Driven by passion fed from a lifelong fascination with sharks, Stewart debunks historical stereotypes and media depictions of sharks as bloodthirsty, man-eating monsters and reveals the reality of sharks as pillars in the evolution of the seas. Filmed in visually stunning, high definition video, Sharkwater takes you into the most shark rich waters of the world, exposing the exploitation and corruption surrounding the world’s shark populations.
Yann Arthus-Bertrand & Michael Pitiot / 90 minsCan we imagine a film that would change the way we look at the ocean? Can we explain simply, to everyone, the greatest natural mystery of our planet? And lastly, can we help our children be-lieve in a better and more sustainable world to-morrow? This is the triple challenge of a new cin-ema adventure signed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and editor- in-chief Michael Pitiot, who brings with him the scientific missions of TARA, a unique pool of researchers, oceanographers and biologists. Thanks to its astonishing photography, the film takes us on a magnificent and unprecedented journey into the heart of the least known regions of our planet. The film narrates the most marvel-ous and also the most terrifying human experienc-es of our time. Filmed in extreme geographical conditions all over the globe, it describes the mod-ern Odyssey of people who go out to discover their blue planet. The film is also a plea for humanity to respect the world in which we live.
