BLACKFISH
Director: Gabriela Cowperthwaite
US / 2012 / 80 minutes

Many of us have experienced the excitement and awe of watching 8,000-pound orcas, or “killer whales,” soar out of the water and fly through the air at sea parks, as if in perfect harmony with their trainers. Yet, in our contemporary lore this mighty black-and-white mammal is like a two-faced Janus—beloved as a majestic, friendly giant yet infamous for its capacity to kill viciously. Blackfish unravels the complexities of this dichotomy, employing the story of notorious performing whale Tilikum, who—unlike any orca in the wild—has taken the lives of several people while in captivity. So what exactly went wrong?

Shocking, never-before-seen footage and riveting interviews with trainers and experts manifest the orca’s extraordinary nature, the species’ cruel treatment in captivity over the last four decades, and the growing disillusionment of workers who were misled and endangered by the highly profitable 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.

    I was disappointed that all 100 seats were taken by 6:45. Would have been there by 6:30 if we had not been delayed by the baseball game and no one knowing were the theater was

    Go ahead without me and I will meet you at the event as I am driving around in circles. I see a Wells Fargo on Shannon and the VW Dealership but my GPS is taking me everywhere but there. Sorry

    I wish we can join you for dinner! But I am cooking dinner for my neighbor to thank her for babysitting so that my hubby and I can go see Blackfish. Hope to meet you guys another time soon!

    Want to try the Refectory Cafe? Just looked at the directions and it is 2.40 miles away so we wouldn't have that far to go.

    I'd like to meet for dinner; do you have a place in mind? I just read that the doors open at 6:30 so we would have to meet around 5:15 to ensure we have plenty of time to eat.

    My husband and I have been looking forward to seeing this! We are so proud Durham is showing it!
