KDL Description:

“I was always amazed by Killer Whales when I was little so watching this film was difficult at times. It’s amazing how little we truly know about Orcas and we should really rethink keeping such creatures in captivity. This documentary was so eye opening I had to watch it twice!”—Emmy at KDL’s Cascade Township branch

Amazon Description:

Killer whales are beloved majestic, friendly giants yet infamous for their capacity to kill viciously. BLACKFISH unravels the complexities of this dichotomy, employing the story of the notorious performing whale Tilikum, who – unlike any orca in the wild – has taken the lives of several people while in captivity. BLACKFISH expands on the discussion of keeping such intelligent creatures in captivity.
