Blackfish

Blackfish

They don’t call them killer whales for nothing. This widely acclaimed doc is based around the violent death of a trainer at a Florida water park. Centre-stage is Tilikum, a whale already responsible for several deaths. Being stolen from your family, kept in a small cell and milked for sperm by another species would probably turn you psychotic as well. Cowperthwaite presents a compelling case against keeping wild animals for human entertainment. (Adelaide Film Festival).
