This is an opportunity of a lifetime. Sharkwater has already won 14 film festivals worldwide and set box office records during its opening weekend in Canada.
Finally a film that portrays sharks as the magnificent creatures they are - to be admired and protected rather than feared and senselessly destroyed. Rob Stewart is an incredible artist who weaves together beautiful images with a horrendous reality and leaves us all with a critical call to action. 100 million sharks are brutally pulled from the ocean every year, their fins and tails sliced off, and then the dying creatures are tossed back into the water. Unable to swim. they sink to the bottom where they are eaten alive. Often garnering more than $300/lb, shark fins add no flavor to the dishes they are added to as they are tasteless Their fins are nothing more than merely a cultural indicator of wealth. The shark-fining industry is a close parallel to the illegal drug industry - full of underworld corruption and extreme violence. In the next 10 years , it is anticipated most shark species will become extinct - an impact that threatens the health of not just the ocean but of the entire world. If we are to stop this senseless brutality and save the remaining sharks, we must come together and act now.
See this movie. Educate yourself. Bring attention to the cause: Stop the cruel and senseless destructions of sharks.
