BLACKFISH Opens August 9th at Enzian
WHAT: 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 mulit-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.
“4 ½ Stars! Draws on detailed research and a surprising amount of archive footage. BLACKFISH is inevitably likely to draw comparisons to The Cove, but unlike that polemic this is not a tunnel-visioned film.”
– Amber Wilkinson, EYE FOR FILM
