"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." -www.blackfishmovie.com
Please join us at a screening of Blackfish at Minnehaha Free Space on June 2 at 6:30pm. We will have a discussion afterwards. Find out how you can help spread the word about orcas in captivity and how we can all help stop this form of animal slavery.
This is a free event, though donations are much appreciated and will be shared with the Free Space.
