Diver filming a great white shark under water.

Misrepresented, maligned and under threat, the great white shark is an iconic predator: the creature we love to fear. Shot on location in South Africa, New Zealand, Mexico and California, the film looks to find the truth behind the mythic creature forever stigmatised by its portrayal in the world’s first blockbuster movie, JAWS.The film examines what we know about these incredible animals through the eyes of several people whose lives and work have become inextricably linked to the great white.
