Touched by a Shark 2012


share on

For centuries, humans focused many aspects of art and beauty.  However, in the pursuit of effective advertising, almost every aspect of normal human life has been commercialized and sensationalized. The side effect is that we have lost our perspective and adopted a misconstrued understanding of many creatures that we once considered majestic, beautiful, and important.

Produced by Valeo Film’s Inc. for Rette den Hai e.V. - Touched by a Shark is a documentary about the most misunderstood animal on our planet -- the shark -- told by divers that have been touched by the magnificent creatures whether physically, emotionally or intellectually.   (Spring 2012)
