BLACKFISH — Saturday, October 12

Sunday, September 29th, 2013


Donald L. Oat Theater

Suggested Donation: $7.00

The first film since Grizzly Man to show just how nature can get revenge on man when pushed to its limits

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. Click here to watch trailer.
