Blackfish Netflix UK
Blackfish is a documentary film released in January 2013 at the Sundance Film Festival. It brings to the forefront the moral and ethical issues over holding killer whales captive, in the documentary you will meet Tilikum, an orca who is currently held by Seaworld (a chain of marine mammal parks). Tilikum was captured in 1983 off the coast of Iceland.
Tilikum has been involved in the deaths of three people so far, the latest one being a trainer named Dawn Brancheau who was killed in 2010 shortly after a performance at the Shamu Show at Seaworld Orlando.
Blackfish explores how the environment the whales are kept in may contribute to their aggressive and sometimes fatal behaviour, you will meet former trainers of Seaworld who explain their experiences with Tilikum and other captive whales.
Blackfish was released onto Netflix UK on 02/11/2014. Blackfish Netflix UK trailer.
