"Blackfish" tells the story of Tilikum, a performing killer whale that has killed several people while in captivity. 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. One Take: Stories through the Lens is a monthly documentary series held at the Little, hosted by Linda Moroney. The series presents a unique mix of documentaries – ranging from film festival favorites to unheralded gems - followed by talkback discussions.
