Darum geht's

Using unseen footage, Blackfish tells the story of the orca bull Tilikum, caught in 1983 aged about two. Since then, it has been appearing in a theme park show—and has already killed several people. As whales never usually attack humans in the wild, what exactly went wrong with this animal?

Der Killerwal Regie Gabriela Cowperthwaite
Blackfish" is a highly compelling film that’s already being touted as a likely Oscar contender. It uses the gruesome 2010 death of a SeaWorld trainer named Dawn Brancheau, and the troubled life history of a six-ton bull orca named Tilikum – who drowned and partly ate Brancheau, and has apparently killed two other people – as the starting points for a disturbing and much larger story.

Unapologetically designed both to inform and affect, Gabriela Cowperthwaite’s delicately lacerating documentary, “Blackfish,” uses the tragic tale of a single whale and his human victims as the backbone of a hypercritical investigation into the marine-park giant SeaWorld Entertainment.

Cowperthwaite backs her emotional-heavy argument of admonishing animal entertainment shows with enough facts from marine researchers to make it sound, but she still holds a one-sided argument against SeaWorld as no current worker is represented in the film. Despite this potential weakness, the film is padded with enough diverse outside voices and intellectuals to still create a story comparing the animal hierarchy in nature to the greedy capitalistic ladder in corporations.
