Blackfish Cert. 15 Picture house at FACT

  • Running time83 minutes
  • DirectorGabriela Cowperthwaite

The first film since GRIZZLY MAN to show how nature can take revenge on humanity when pushed to its limits, BLACKFISH tells the story of Tilikum, a performing orca that killed several people while in captivity.

Director-producer Cowperthwaite compiles shocking footage and emotional interviews to explore orcas’ extraordinary nature, their cruel treatment in captivity, the lives and losses of the trainers, and the pressures brought to bear by the multibillion-dollar sea park industry.

The result is a tautly structured psychological thriller that challenges us to consider our relationship with nature, and reveals how little we humans have learned from these highly intelligent and enormously sentient fellow mammals.
