Driven by a life-long fascination with sharks, filmmaker Rob Stewart sets out to dispel the myth that they’re bloodthirsty, merciless monsters who prowl the seas in search of tasty swimmers.
Filmed in gorgeous high-definition video, Sharkwater takes you into shark-filled oceans, exposing the true nature of sharks as well as the way human interference has turned this noble predator into prey. Stewart teams up with a rogue environmentalist group on a breathtaking adventure to battle shark poachers around the globe. His incredible journey will make you see sharks in a whole new light.
Winner of many Audience and Critics Choice awards at film festivals around the world.
Toronto-born Stewart was an award-winning journalist who spent four years shooting Sharkwater, his debut doc. His activism with the film later inspired Revolution, with both films earning awards at festivals worldwide. Stewart tragically passed away in January while filming Sharkwater: Extinction.
