Movies to Change the World: Sharkwater

In partnership with the Multnomah County library system, on Sunday, January 6 we bring you a film series that could change the way you see the world. We continue with Sharkwater.

Join us at the Multnomah County Hollywood Library located at 4040 NE Tillamook St, Portland. Doors open at 1:30pm. Event runs 2:00-4:30pm. Following the film, there will be a Q & A.

For filmmaker Rob Stewart, exploring sharks began as an underwater adventure. What it turned into was a beautiful and dangerous life journey into the balance of life on earth.
Driven by passion fed from a lifelong fascination with sharks, Stewart debunks historical stereotypes and media depictions of sharks as bloodthirsty, man-eating monsters and reveals the reality of sharks as pillars in the evolution of the seas.

    Well done, about a very sad subject. I appreciate that Sea Shepherd is also Vegan, along with saving the earth's precious resources!

    The reason why this film is so important and even more so that raising awareness is so important...

    Yeah yeah - NO WAY I am getting near sharks! At the Oregon Coast Aquarium, I RUN AWAY! No stereotyping involved! They scare the shit right outta me! Good luck with this movie my vegan friends!

      This film is about conserving them, not necessarily getting close to them. ;-) And after watching it, you may leave with a completely different opinion about sharks. It is a great film. But, of course, it is your decision. =)

      It isn't the sharks that are scary in this film....... The film does have lots of beautiful up-close scenes of sharks - very interesting to watch.
