Following this 30-minute film, actors/directors/writers Rob and Laura Sams present a live interactive show featuring songs, demonstrations and the administering of the "Shark Oath " What do you do when you’re on the beach waiting for someone to pose a riddle to you, but there’s no one around? Why not do what sister-and-brother zoologists Laura and Robert Sams do: Find a magical journal that needs sharks’ teeth to reveal its riddles and go on a search for answers. The sibling filmmakers’ love of nature—especially sea creatures—brings to life this charming, rib-tickling, inventive and engaging quest to find a tooth from the biggest living shark. Along the way, Laura and Rob encounter a singing sea lion who celebrates the great white shark, a pirate who trades in tiny things and a seagull who’s afraid of sharks (but shouldn’t be). Spectacular underwater footage of sharks—including operatic sharks—enhance The Shark Riddle’s wonderful journey. Ages 7+
