For filmmaker Rob Stewart, discovering sharks began as an underwater adventure. It soon became a beautiful and dangerous life journey into the balance of life on earth. Driven by a passion fed by 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.
