Edmonds CC to screen 'Blackfish' documentary

Feb 25, 2014

A screening of the documentary film "Blackfish" at Edmonds Community College will feature two of the cast members.

The film will be shown 12:30 p.m. Thursday, March 6, in the Black Box Theatre on campus, 20000 68th Ave. W.

"Blackfish" reveals the life of captive killer whales, especially at Sea World. The documentary chronicles the life of Tilikum, a captive orca responsible for the deaths of three people — a behavior never witnessed in the wild.

A Q&A following the film will include Carol Ray, a former Sea World trainer, and Howard Garrett, co-founder of the Orca Network.

The screening is free and open to the public, but a $5 donation is appreciated.
