A NEW FEATURE film documentary about the life of Australian shark lady Valerie Taylor is currently being developed.

The Real Jaws: The Valerie Taylor Story is a Wildbear Entertainment production directed by Sally Aitken and by produced Bettina Dalton.

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.
