Created by independent film makers James Gelet, Jake Gove, Erik Hollander, and J. Michael Roddy, the film contains never-before-seen footage along with commentary from some of the hottest filmmakers of this generation, who discuss how Jaws helped shape the elements of pop culture.

Jaws screenwriter Carl Gottlieb, production designer Joe Alves, and legendary makeup effects artist, Gregory Nicotero will be on hand for Q&A. Nicotero will be bringing a life-sized replica of the head portion of "Bruce" the shark to display for photos. in the documentary is an interview with NYT best-selling author Steve Alten, whose Meg series has brought visceral thrills to a new generation of shark enthusiasts.

On May 19th, Alten's highly-anticipated fourth Meg novel, MEG: Hell's Aquarium will debut in bookstores, and reviewers agree it is the best story in the series, featuring some of the nastiest sea monsters ever to have lived.
