BLACKFISH tells the story of Tilikum, a 12,000 pound orca whale that has been involved in the deaths of three people.  Along the way, director-producer Gabriela Cowperthwaite compiles shocking footage and emotional interviews to explore the creature’s extraordinary nature, the lives and losses of the trainers, and the pressures brought to bear by the
marine park industry.

The controversial documentary challenges viewers to consider humans’ relationship to nature and these highly intelligent and enormously sentient animals, while presenting a case against keeping them for human entertainment.

The film has received rave reviews and explains why wild animals belong in the wild and not as "entertainment" for humans.

The film will air this Thursday, October 24 at 9:00 p.m. (ET) on CNN.  This film is a
DIY (do-it-yourself) event.  Invite family and friends over to see this powerful film that critics have called "a mesmerizing psychological thriller" and "impressive, often gripping documentary."  Other critics' comments include "you have rarely seen footage this
tense," "unfolds like a thriller," "compelling," and "plays out like a crime thriller." 
You won't want to miss this film to see for yourself what everyone is talking about.

    Will be on a plane or in Boston. Will try to see it, I have heard...and I have always wondered how those animals could survive in captivity...it never seemed like a good idea for me.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
