Blackfish: A Powerful New Documentary

blackfish

My friend Lisa told me about this fantastic-looking documentary. The trailer is great and I can’t wait to see it. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and is available everywhere this Friday, July 26th. I really think this is something everyone needs to see…

Here’s a little synopsis:

Blackfish tells the story of Tilikum, a performing killer whale that killed several people while in captivity. Along the way, director-producer Gabriela Cowperthwaite compiles shocking footage and emotional interviews to explore the creature’s extraordinary nature, the species’ cruel treatment in captivity, the lives and losses of the trainers and the pressures brought to bear by the multi-billion dollar sea-park industry.

This emotionally wrenching, tautly structured story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature and reveals how little we humans have learned from these highly intelligent and enormously sentient fellow mammals.

You have to watch the trailer:
