2013 / 1h 23m / PG-13 / Documentary – NOW AVAILABLE TO STREAM AT HOME!
Many of us have experienced the excitement and awe of watching 8,000 pound orcas, or “killer whales,” soar out of the water and fly through the air at sea parks, as if in perfect harmony with their trainers. Yet this mighty black and white mammal has many sides – a majestic, friendly giant, seemingly eager to take trainers for a ride around the pool, yet shockingly – and unpredictably – able to turn on them at a moment’s notice. Blackfish unravels the complexities of this dichotomy, employing the story of Tilikum, a whale that has been involved in the deaths of several people while in sea parks.
Live Q&A session! On Wednesday, June 3 at 8pm EDT, Blackfish director Gabriela Cowperthwaite will participate in a live-stream discussion. You can submit questions in advance via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via Twitter, using the hashtag #magnoliadocseries. CLICK HERE TO JOIN THE Q&A
