Great White Shark

No other modern animal may command both our fears and fascination as much as the great white shark – but The Maritime Aquarium’s new IMAX film suggests, instead, that these incredible predators mainly need our help and respect.

“Great White Shark” unravels the mystery of the creature we love to fear in telling the true story of its role atop the oceanic food chain.

“Our mission is to change people’s attitudes toward the great white,” said Steve McNicholas, co-director of the film. “It’s not the menacing, evil predator it’s made out to be. It’s simply performing its crucial role at the top of the ocean’s food chain. Great whites are not monsters any more than the polar bears or lions that we revere.”

The 40-minute film takes viewers around the world to great-white hotspots and examines what we know about these incredible animals through the eyes of several people whose lives and work have become inextricably linked to the great white, including shark expert Michael Rutzen, who openly scuba dives among them.
