It will be on CNN Oct 24th. May be in theatres still. Then out on CD through Amazon and Netflix sometime in November 2013.

Sundance London review

Gabriel Cowperthwaite’s documentary centres around Tilikum, a gigantic and short-tempered orca whale responsible for the death of three people, two of which being Seaworld’s own killer whale trainers . It takes the death of 40 year old trainer Dawn Brancheu in 2010 as it’s focal incident and traces back to the day that Tilikum was snatched from the wild. With a blend of emotional talking head interviews with ex-trainers, animatic recreations and disturbing stock footage the film calmly presents the evidence in a way that is involving and insightful from its very first moments.

1. Inhumane conditions for the whales

 

Live 25-30 years in a small water enclosure..what do they expect?

Wish these places would either shut down or be required to have larger pools of water.

2. A lot of people are hoping for momentum

from this movie to end the practice of captive killer whales. The movie makers are going to be supplying it to schools I believe.
