Filmed on Sunday, May 26, 2019 at North 225B at Phoenix Fan Fusion – sit down for a fun discussion Cult Following Xtra presentation about sharks in popular culture!

For centuries, sharks have always had a role in pop culture – from Verne’s “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” to Spielberg’s “Jaws”… and the role has always been as a villain. But recently, the image of sharks has been rehabilitated, with Finding Nemo’s “Bruce” proclaiming that fish are friends, not food! Join the panel as they discuss how sharks are becoming less the monster and more the majestic in the camera eye. Hosted by The Klute, shark diver, and host of the Phoenix Fan Fusion Nerd Slam – featuring Charles Rolsky of Laboratory Casual, and Ruby Tate and Victor Moreno of Cult Classics and Alamo Drafthouse Cinema – a panel of pop culture and marine science experts!
