While living in Hamburg, my friend convinced me to go to the zoo. After walking the Alster 100 times, I begrudgingly obliged. A quick pic. in front of a sex shop. Yes, they had a red light district next to a zoo, bizarre but true. Anyway, I hated it. I don’t want to watch animals caged, suffering, climbing the walls. It’s barbaric, unnatural and confirms the times we live in. Greed and politics fuel a messed up society. Living in South Africa for a time, I saw zebras, penguins, giraffes roam free. Nature, uncontrived. Holiday break in my house means movies. We watch lots and lots of film, of all kinds, genres. Blackfish, the documentary about killer whales ripped from their mothers at a young age, held in captivity mainly at SeaWorld, was brutally mesmerizing. A wake-up call. SeaWorld has made millions, gotten away with murder for a profit. I say fuk you, SeaWorld. Greed may be intoxicating, you won’t see one dollar of mine. Blackfish is quite possibly the most socially disturbing film I’ve seen. And, a must for anyone with a conscience, and a pulse.
‘Killer whales are beloved majestic, friendly giants yet infamous for their capacity to kill viciously. BLACKFISH unravels the complexities of this dichotomy, employing the story of the notorious performing whale Tilikum, who – unlike any orca in the wild – has taken the lives of several people while in captivity. BLACKFISH expands on the discussion of keeping such intelligent creatures in captivity. – See more at: http://www.magpictures.com/blackfish/#sthash.dwzwYLmw.dpuf’
