The blockbuster documentary of the summer BLACKFISH will be screened exclusively in Niagara on Friday September 27th.
The film screening will be part of a fundraising event for the legal defense fund for the Marineland Whistleblowers who are all currently facing SLAPP lawsuits by the captive marine mammal park.
BLACKFISH focuses on the captivity of the killer whale Tilikum, who was involved in the deaths of three individuals and the consequences of keeping such large and intelligent animals in captivity. The film has played to sold out audiences around the world and garnered rave reviews and will have an immediate impact in the Niagara area where it will be screened for the first time ever in close proximity to Marineland.
Joining us at this event for a Q&A session after the film with Samantha Berg & Dr. Naomi Rose.
Samantha Berg is a former Seaworld trainer featured in the film and is now an anti captivity activist working towards spreading public awareness about marine mammal captivity.
Dr. Rose is a highly respected marine biologist who for years has worked on marine mammal protection issues around the world. She is one of the main protagonists in the recent best seller Death at Seaworld by David Kirby
