Progressive Film Series: March 12th, 2015
Blackfish is the documentary for March. The
film relates the story of the killer whale Tilikum, a SeaWorld performer, who
viciously kills two trainers. It expands the discussion into the morality
of keeping such huge and intelligent creatures in captivity.
This film is very
educational about the habits and intelligence of killer whales, and the way in
which man has trapped them and imprisoned them for our entertainment. The documentary is moving on an emotional
basis as well as on a scientific basis.It emphasizes that we must learn to live in harmony with our fellow
creatures as we convert to a low carbon energy system.
"An eye-opening ...gripping mindbender."-- Rolling
psychological thriller."-- Variety.
