Her partnership with husband Ron Taylor produced a prolific body of work and achievement that only ended with Ron’s passing in 2012. Since then Valerie has continued to dive and passionately advocate for the oceans and ocean wild life.
According to Screen Australia, who helped fund the project, the feature will reveal how Valerie defied gender expectations in her work, and dedicated her life to shark conservation.
The film will include decades of personal film archives.
More to come.
