A mesmerizing psychological thriller with a killer whale at its center, BLACKFISH is the first film since Grizzly Man to show how nature can get revenge on man when pushed to its limits. This acclaimed documentary unravels the complexities of our relationship to orcas or “killer whales.” Employing the story of notorious performing whale Tilikum, who unlike any orca in the wild has taken the lives of several people while in captivity, this emotionally wrenching, tautly structured story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature and reveals how little humans have learned from these highly intelligent fellow mammals.
