Product Description

SHARKWATER Out 21st May 2008 Driven by a lifelong fascination with sharks, he discovers these magnificent creatures have gone from predator to prey, and how despite surviving the earth's history of mass extinctions, they could easily be wiped out within a few years due to human greed. In an effort to protect these founders of the seas, Stewart teams up with renegade conservationist Paul Watson (Sea Shepherd Conservation Society). Their unbelievable adventure starts with a full-on battle with shark poachers in Guatemala, resulting in pirate boat rammings, gunboat chases, mafia espionage, corrupt court systems and attempted murder charges. This 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. Featuring an original score from Jeff Rona (Original Music, The Lion King), plus tracks from Moby, Nina Simone, Portishead, Aphex Twin and more.

Review

A group of us went to see this film last night and we all came out speechless. It is the most amazing film I have ever seen, i have never been so affected by a film, nor has a film ever compelled me to get out there and do something to help like this film did. I am in total awe of what Rob has achieved with Sharkwater, and I can\ t wait to start helping in any way I can to save these beautiful creatures. The film left us all feeling inspired, overwhelmed, desperately sad, but hopeful that this is the beginning of an amazing crusade to save the sharks. --Katie Carlin

This was the most beautifully shot piece of cinematography I\ ve ever had the fortune to watch. Even so, this beauty was nothing compared to the utterly tragic and desperately moving discoveries the film documented. Rob Stewart cannot be thanked and praised enough for this film and it marks the beginning of something crucial. This must be stopped and this film is what\ s needed to educate and amaze people. I cannot wait to watch it again and encourage everyone I know to watch it. It literally changes you. --Leonar UK

Awesome documentary with a strong message that was brought across.It\ s a shame to see these magnificent creatures to be diminished because of one disgusting reason-shark finning.Rob\ s The Man!Sea Shepherd\ s crew are heroes!Totally respect their efforts and as a diver,I will work on influencing more people to stop consuming shark fin! --Jenelle

This is a must see documentary and is so much more than a documentary.
I was fortunate to see this movie whilst on holiday in the US. It is the most amazing film I have ever seen, I don't think I been so affected by a film, nor has a film ever compelled me to get out there and do something to help like this film did. I am in total awe of what Rob has achieved with Sharkwater and hopeful that this is the beginning of an amazing crusade to save the sharks.

Beautiful, moving, agonising, inspiring, horrific...

A simply fantastic piece of film making exposing the cruelty with which we exploit the oceans and one of our most spectacular and misunderstood animals, highlighting the apparent inevitability of the demise of the shark and the fact that it is us that will pay the ultimate price.

Beautifully shot in HD with fantastic underwater sequences interspersed with upsetting footage of our abuse of these graceful creatures. Wonderful sound track, great editing and a gripping story will keep you on the edge of your seat and change your view of these creatures and, perhaps, of the way we abuse the sea.

This is not a Blue Planet. It is a conservation film rather than a natural history documentary so expect to listen as well as watch.

Blu-Ray is well worth having, but buy it anyway even in "normal" definition.

As important as "An Inconvenient Truth". A must have film.

I found this dvd shocking as I did not know that sharks were under such extreme threat from us. The shark fin industry is a multi-billion dollar business, most of it being fuelled by Asia. I simply did not know how much chaos this industry has created for sharks, and the only 2 save havens left for sharks in the world are not even safe. I was impressed by the guy on this dvd who fights to save the sharks from all the over-fishing and was amazed by the lengths he was willing to go to to try and protect the sharks, often in vain unfortunately. He gets arrested and well as gets on the wrong side of different mafias who are often involved with the illegal fishing in Galapagos and Costa Rica. It seems like he is often fighting a losing battle but never gives up and risks his life and freedom to try and save the sharks from the mass slaughter. It is disturbing to watch some of the scenes as they show fisherman cutting the fins and tails off of sharks then throwing them overboard to sink to the bottom and drown. It makes humans look like savages with no feeling or emapthy for other living beings. It really is horrendous! I would recommend this to anyone who likes to know the issues of the animal world and seeks the truth instead of hiding from it. A really well made documentary.

A well presented, part natural history, part conservation documentary with some excellent underwater filmwork.
Much of it filmed around Costa Rica and the Galapagos Islands.

While watching this it was easy to think 'greedy/ignorant/cruel shark finning, foreign fishermen'.
But after a bit of further investigation, a quick check on the BBC news reveals:
"The UK is one of only five EU member states that issue special permits to allow the removal of fins at sea under the EU finning ban"

Not only is this a great HD movie with amazing shots, but it's a thought provoking eye opening must see. This is not just your regular nature documentary, it's a view into the whole world of sharks, and some of the practices still happening today. See for yourself and make up your own mind, but whatever your feelings I urge you to watch this movie.

Sharkwater is an epic in the truest sense of the word. The blurb says it took four years to film across more than 15 countries. Clearly lots of efforts, but the results more than match up! Sharkwater contains scene after scene of stunning underwater imagery of Sharks and marine ecosystems, intelligently highlighting the danger our modern lifestyles are placing upon them. If you liked Blue Planet, this will be right up your street!

It really is an incredible watch and is suited to all audiences from school age up. Like other reviewers I will certainly be encouraging me firends to purchase the DVD as well! Great score as well including Portishead and Nina Simone! :)

Even who lives close to where some of sharkwater was filmed had no idea.
it is eye opening and urgently needed to be seen by all.
WATCH IT! It is about OUR survival!!!!
We need to become conscious of what is happening.
Tell as many people as you can.
Thank you to Rob Stewart.
