Film "BLACKFISH" 2013-09-27 15:00:00
Description

 

BLACKFISH

Director: Gabriela Cowperthwaite    USA, 2013, 84 minutes; PG

"IF YOU SEE ONE DOCUMENTARY THIS YEAR, MAKE IT ‘BLACKFISH’!” –The Hollywood News

“ONE OF THE BEST FILMS OF 2013 SO FAR!” –Awards Daily

“FIVE STARS!  A MUST-SEE!” –Daily Mirror  

“Blackfish” is the first film since “Grizzly Man” to show how nature can get revenge on man when pushed to its limits.

A mesmerizing psychological thriller with a bruised and battered killer whale at its center, “Blackfish” launches a direct attack on the practice of keeping marine mammals in captivity. Righteous, captivating and entirely successful as single-issue-focused documentaries go, Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s film draws on startling video footage and testimonies from former orca trainers, building an authoritative argument on behalf of this majestic species. A powerful educational tool.

The protagonist of “Blackfish” is Tilikum, a 12,000-pound bull orca that has caused the deaths of three people in his 20-odd years as a theme-park attraction. The most recent victim was Dawn Brancheau, an experienced Sea World trainer whose February 2010 death is presented as a human tragedy that could have been prevented.

Cowperthwaite interviews numerous ex-trainers. Another key source is whale researcher-activist Howard Garrett. The film then builds a compelling psychological profile of Tilikum, who, after being captured in 1983, was held at a now-defunct Canadian theme park called Sealand of the Pacific. There, he was subjected to uniquely abusive training techniques. Tilikum’s first human victim was a young Sealand trainer, Keltie Byrne, who slipped into the tank, was attacked by the three whales, and eventually drowned.

Tilikum was transferred to Sea World Orlando in 1992, and the film suggests not only that his traumas and anxieties followed him there, but also that the park failed to conduct a proper inquiry into the violent history of its prize acquisition. Unsurprisingly, no Sea World representatives were willing to be interviewed. –Variety
