In this stunning giant-screen movie, filmmakers Steve McNicholas and Luke Cresswell take viewers around the world for “a breathtaking encounter with the predator we love to fear” and a look at their critical role at the top of the oceanic food chain.

Focusing on four key Great-White hotspots—Mexico, South Africa, California, and New Zealand, the 40-minute film explores what is known about these incredible animals—their strength and beauty—and why they are vulnerable to extinction. Bill Nighy narrates as viewers see sharks through the eyes of people whose lives and work are inextricably linked to the Great White, including two record-breaking free divers, Frederic Buyle and William Winram, who tag Great Whites during free dives.
