Blackfish

Synopsis
BLACKFISH tells the story of Tilikum, a performing killer whale responsible for the deaths of three people while in captivity at the Sea World marine park in Orlando, Florida. Director-producer Gabriela Cowperthwaite examines the profit-driven ethos of the sea-park industry, where business comes before the welfare of both animals and trainers, resulting in the tragic events examined in the film.
