We can't wait to release Blackfish in cinemas this summer, and you can catch an early preview at the Prince Charles Cinema in London as one of their iconic double bill programmes - find out all the real killer whale Tilikum, and then follow it up with the classic shark thriller Jaws. The double bill screening takes place on July 15th from 6.50pm and tickets are now on sale here
Blackfish tells the story of Tilikum, a performing killer whale that killed several people while in captivity. Along the way, director-producer Gabriela Cowperthwaite compiles shocking footage and emotional interviews to explore the creature’s extraordinary nature, the species’ cruel treatment in captivity, the lives and losses of the trainers and the pressures brought to bear by the mulit-billion dollar sea-park industry. This emotionally wrenching, tautly structured story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature and reveals how little we humans have learned from these highly intelligent and enormously sentient fellow mammals.
