Blackfish: Captive Killer Whales
One of my deepest connections in life is between nature & I. The wonders of this planet never cease to amaze me.
Being born and grown up by the sea, we Kuwaitis love the water and all it entails. Since the existence of wild animals in the GCC is minimal, our negative effects on the sea are from the Gulf War oil spills, our jet ski and yacht engines, and pollution but in other parts of the world, the damage is quite different. I’m not disregarding the issues we have here- I’m just bringing others to light.
Oceans are the most beautiful yet complex part of our planet, and sometimes, I can’t help but blame humans for slowly tearing it and its components apart.
The need for us to meddle and develop relationships with wild animals has become a marketing objective, a reason why dolphins are show mammals and whales wave at you in Sea World. Somehow, we’ve come to believe it’s a form of entertainment… but we are wrong.
Today was one those days where I had an early night, relaxed, and gave a full one hour and twenty-three minutes to one of the best documentaries I have seen thus far, Blackfish. It is the perfect example of information we should know.
It is a mesmerizing psychological thriller with a killer whale at its centre. It’s actually the first film since Grizzly Man to show how nature can get revenge on man when pushed to its limits.
I won’t say anything else, watch the trailer, thank me later!
