 Post subject: Blackfish [documentary]
PostPosted: Fri May 30, 2014 5:34 pm 
AsSalaamu 'Alaikum.

My academic writing final is on this documentary. It is very moving and I feel worth sharing it.

phpBB [media]


Summary: 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.

Yes I have heard of this, although not watched the whole thing. Shocking, really. If you are interested in the plight of orcas in amusement parks, perhaps you might like to sign the following petition to have a young one called Morgan (who was captured from the wild in 2010, separated from her family and sold to an amusement park in Spain) released, if you have not done so already of course....
