Blackfish: A new documentary about orcas

September 17, 2013

The Ventura Film Society presents Blackfish today Tuesday Sept. 17, 2013 at 7:15pm in downtown Ventura 420 E. Santa Clara (near Oak). The title refers to the First Nations name for orcas, a mammal that Americans typically misname “killer whales.” The film has opened to rave reviews (see links below). Watching the trailer provides a sense of how compelling, moving and important this documentary is. In attendance tonight in Ventura will be the film’s director and its composer.

VFS2013blackfish In its fifth season, the Ventura Film Society celebrates Film as Public Art by engaging, informing and inspiring people with stories that “pay tribute to films and filmmakers, from emerging talents to acknowledged masters, with compelling live appearances and special programs.” The VFS shows Films the first and third Tuesdays of the month.

General admission is $10; $7 for seniors and $5 for students with ID.

    This sounds awesome. It is amazing how much orcas are like humans in their families and the social structure. It is a shame they are allowed to be kept in captivity. If people knew just a little bit about these creatures I’m sure they would not be in favor of keeping them in parks like Sea World. As much as I would like to go see them up close, and show my children, I will never go to Sea World ever again for as long as I live.
