Blackfish Twitter Q&A on June 11th

If you can't get to the Apple Store in London on Monday to meet Blackfish director Gabriela Cowperthwaite then she is going to be taking over the Blackfishmovie twitter account on Tuesday 11th June from 4-5pm (GMT) to answer your questions. So if you are desperate to ask Gabby a question then simply tweet your questions with #BlackfishQnA on the day and she will try to reply to as many of them as possible during the hour!

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.

The UK release is set for 26th July. For more information on the film, visit, and you can also follow the film on Facebook
