Synopsis:
A mesmerising psychological thriller with a killer whale at its centre, 'Blackfish' is the first film since 'Grizzly Man' to show 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. Shocking never-before-seen footage and riveting interviews, 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.
