Dates and Times:
August 4, 7:00PM-8:30PM

DocuMonday presents the documentary film “Blackfish” on Monday, August 4 at 7:00 pm in the Peter White Public Library Community Room.

“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 multi-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.

A multiple film festival award nominee, “Blackfish” was released in 2013, is rated PG-13, runs for 83 minutes. There is no admission charge thanks to sponsorship by the Friends of the Peter White Public Library.
