What’s up with all these sharks in movies? In contrast to complex portrayals in Hawaiian and Pacific Islander mythologies, depictions of sharks in popular culture tend to cast them as terrifying animals focused on eating people. They have also been used for comedic effect, as a counterpoint to their fearsome image. In real life, shark attacks globally are rare and are in decline. Our July Film School shows off the wide range in which sharks are depicted on film.
As always, all 25 titles selected for our monthly Film School are available to rent for half price all month long!
