It’s Episode 73 and it’s a special edition! For this episode we have THREE guests! Not Another Book Podcast join us to review the 2013 documentary Blackfish, the choice of Post Colonial Child.

If you haven’t seen this heartbreaking and shocking documentary – stop reading and head straight to Netflix. A modern day tragedy for human and mammals, Blackfish is the true story of Tilikum, a captive killer whale responsible for the death of three people.

It’s focus is the tragic death of Dawn Branchau, an experienced and dedicated SeaWorld trainer and the incidents of abuse to the whale that killed her leading up to the violent incident.

Barely making a ripple at the box office the legacy of Blackfish is still being felt, John Lassiter and Andrew Stanton changed the story of Finding Nemo after watching this and SeaWorld faced an 84% drop in profits in 2015.

Scores

Its impossible not to be moved or shocked by this well directed and captive documentary and it’s power is reflected in the scores from Flixwatcher and guests. Blackfish scores overall a strong 4.19, especially for a documentary- recommended.
