Documentaries

 

GEERG shark research activities have been featured in several documentaries of various scope and length. Unfortunately, we usually have no say in the post production of these shows and some have occasionally presented ideas or needless sensationalism that do not reflect our values. As a result, we have turned down a number of recent production offers that we deemed of disservice to the Greenland shark, to science, and to the truth. We nonetheless enthusiastically welcome the opportunity to collaborate on new film productions that will help raise awareness on the little-known Greenland shark when the scenario is based on reality, i.e. sharks are not mindless killers and those who dive with them are not daredevils.

The Seal Ripper (Channel 5, Nature Shock) [CLIP]

Good production but low score due to erroneous conclusion. Click [HERE] for full analysis.

Jaws in Illinois (History Channel, MonsterQuest) [VIEW]

This show is overly sensational and it misleads the audience by suggesting that the Greenland shark stalks humans in a warm and freshwater environment. If we had been made aware of the true nature of the plot, we would not have done this show.

Cinéaste des profondeurs (Humanima) [CLIP]

French-language documentary on underwater cinematographer Mario Cyr includes a segment with Jeffrey Gallant and the Greenland shark in Baie-Comeau.

Searching for a Monster (Canadian Geographic)

Our first feature documentary on the Greenland shark in Baie-Comeau and also our favourite. Great film crew led by Andrea Stewart. The show won second place at the Belgrade Underwater Film Festival.
