Film: Great White Shark 3D

Great White Shark explores the great white's place in our imaginations, in our fears, and in its role at the top of the oceanic food chain. Shot on location in South Africa, New Zealand, Mexico and California, the film looks to find the truth behind the mythic creature forever stigmatized by its portrayal in the world's first blockbuster movie, Jaws.
Great White Shark aims to reveal the strength and beauty of these animals by looking through the eyes of those who have been touched by their shark encounters: Mike Rutzen, South African shark expert, who swims with great whites in the aptly named Shark Alley; Chris Lowe, who has been tagging juvenile great whites off the coast of Los Angeles and discovering more and more of their secret life; and two record-breaking freedivers, Frederic Buyle and William Winram, who tag Great Whites by simply holding their breath and freediving with the sharks.
