Filmed with very ambitious camera gear, this documentary reveals unprecedented social behavior of sharks.

     

     

    The film demonstrates that, contrary to what science said up to now, sharks do not hunt alone. They are actually organized with a leader, have strategies and collaborate among one another. An organization that resembles a pack of wolves or lions.
    Discover incredible scenes of hunting, like in a savannah wildlife film, in which fifty sharks team up to capture one fish, and prey that sometimes manages to outsmart sharks.
    Filmed with underwater 4K cameras, drones, Gopro black for “bullet time” effect, high speed cameras to capture the best predation scenes that last less than a second.
