BlackfishNotorious killer whale Tilikum is responsible for the deaths of three individuals, including a top killer whale trainer. This film shows the sometimes devastating consequences of keeping such intelligent and sentient creatures in captivity. Director Gabriela Cowperthwaite (producer and writer of Animal Nightmares, producer of Intimate Colors) uses shocking footage and emotional interviews to present a convincing case against keeping these wild animals for human entertainment. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. (83 minutes)
