Product Overview

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 life-long 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. Stewart's remarkable journey of courage and determination changes from a mission to save the world's sharks, into a fight for his life, and that of humankind.

ReviewSource Variety
Review As "March of the Penguins" showed, even a finished documentary can sometimes be merely raw material. A little tightening in the editing room, a new score and fresh narration turned Warner Independent Pictures' French pickup into a commercial phenomenon among non-fiction features. "Sharkwater" won't likely repeat that feat but a similar rethink would be a strong start to secure wider exposure for its stunning underwater visuals and its persuasive advocacy of the urgent need for conservation of the ocean's top dog. In its present form, however, the film's merits are compromised by structural and conceptual flaws...As an eco-political inquiry, the film is compelling even if its grounding in scientific fact could be more solid. It explains how lack of adequate controls on the fishing of international waters and, in particular, the devastating effects of long-line fishing, have bred random slaughter and 90% depletion of the world's shark population...While it's no match in terms of research and depth of detail, most of the elements are here for an eco-upset tale as complex and cautionary as "Darwin's Nightmare." Stewart just needs to reorganize his information and to step back and shift the focus from himself to his fascinating subject.

Aaron Hillis, The Village Voice ...stunning underwater cinematography.
Cam Lindsay, Exclaim! The evidence Stewart presents is both horrifying and heartbreaking, and is exactly the sort of expose every shark lover/activist has been waiting for.
