Join us for a potluck dinner and a movie at the Olde Cary Commons!
For our first of hopefully many movie nights, we will be watching Blackfish:
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.
As a courtesy, please consider your RSVP carefully and only RSVP yes if you plan to be available to attend. If you RSVP and find out later you cannot attend, please be polite and update your RSVP so other members can fill your spot. Any TVSC member who misses 3 or more events without updating their status will be asked to leave the group.
If you think you may want to take leftovers home, please consider bringing your own container(s). Finally, please remember that members and guests are expected to order vegan food at TVSC events.
