It was one of the hottest films out of the Sundance Film Festival, but "Blackfish" will leave you with chills. Critics have praised "Blackfish" for being an "emotionally powerful" and "mesmerizing psychological thriller" that could double as a teaching tool. Thank you for watching CNN Films' documentary "Blackfish" for more information, please visit cnn.com/blackfish.

Blackfish is perhaps the best piece of programming CNN has ever aired. Filmmaker Gabriela Cowperthwaite has done a masterful job and deserves the Oscar. Very powerful, disturbing, eye-opening, emotionally riveting. Sea World should be shut down and the management and its owners Anheuser-Busch should be held accountable and prosecuted for criminal activity. Return these intelligent creatures back to the wild where they belong.
When I went to Sea World, at the end of the day I got tired and couldn't wait to get home except the whales couldn't go home! They had been there longer than my whole life. I can't understand how that must feel!!! I think I will vomit on the thought.
So very sad...I agree with everything that Amie L commented. How horrible for these animals. How do you think they would react and act out!!! Take their calves away hear them cry out for them...Put these large creatures in small spaces..swim in circles all day. Try staying in one room all day..all week..all month. How would you feel? How would you act? It's all about the almighty dollar!!!!
This is my third time watching BlackFish on CNN. There are no words to explain the rage I feel inside. Something has to be done to put a stop to all water parks engaging in this barbaric treatment of Orca's. Because they make billions from exploiting these magnificent animals, they're not going to stop. And they have the finances and attorney's to protect themselves. Us, the public must put a stop to it, by not supporting water parks and signing petitions.
I filmed the segment with Tamara whose arm was broken. My daughters are at the start of the film segment. I thought that film was used for OSHA / Workman's Comp and would become public, but it didn't. How did it get out?
SeaWorld refused to attend scientific debates on orcas in captivity at 2012 @IMCC2014 & 2013 Soc. Marine Mammal conferences #Blackfish

If they can survive, release them. Problem is we've made these captive whales dependent on humans for food. If they were raised in captivity they don't know how to survive. If I've purchased tickets but no longer want to support SeaWorld will they refund my tickets?
This has woke me up to the imoral deception and greedy lying corruption that is being lived by corprate zombies that care nothing about humanity,nature or anything other than their own desires to be fulfilled at the the expense of lives of humans and the beautiful loving creatures that they rob of their lives. This is so sick and a reflection of the state of humanity as a whole on how blind, and uninformed we have become because our choices we make to stay in a state of not informing ourselves with THE TRUTH of what is really happing to our world.
