This film aims to explore all aspects of the Great White in relation to man: our misconceptions, our fears, our connections. By exploring key Great White aggregation points around the world, in New Zealand, Mexico and South Africa, we will meet Great Whites up close in their environment. We will consider Great Whites on a global scale, their journeys across oceans, between continents, rivalling whale and bird migrations. We will see how the shark plays a crucial role in maintaining the biodiversity of our oceans….

The film will concentrate on three key aggregation points around the world:

The crystal clear waters of Guadalupe Island, off the Western Coast of Baja, Mexico.

The wild waters around Stewart Island, off the southernmost tip of New Zealand, a newly discovered aggregation point.

The self dubbed Great White Shark capital of the world, Gaansbaii, South Africa, famous for its breaching sharks, which has been captured for the film for the first time in 3D using the high speed IMAX/Phantom camera system.

Finally, the film takes us to the shallow waters just off Venice Beach, Santa Monica and Malibu: a juvenile White Shark hot spot that just happens to exist on the doorstep of one of the world’s most heavily congested cities.
