As you watch, pay attention to the following:
- how many questions are open (for Rachel to talk about the issue she stands for)
- how many address facts about GMO benefits (not myths, that Rachel instantly deconstructs)
- how many go off-topic in addressing Rachel as a person (a teen), thus undermining the credibility of her as a person and everything she stands for and says
- how many assumptions are made about her position (that are off topic, and also shift away from the core (and only) cause she represents)

If you take your kids to the aquarium or to theme parks like Sea World and Busch Gardens or Hersheypark that have zoo park or a marine park, you need to see this film. It will open your eyes and change your point of view for the better.
Even if you don’t have kids, EVERYONE should see this movie, because WILD animals belong in the WILD — NOT in captivity, or at least not kept for profit if captivity is for some reason the only option in special cases.
Notorious killer whale Tilikum is responsible for the deaths of three individuals, including a top killer whale trainer. Blackfish shows the sometimes devastating consequences of keeping such intelligent and sentient creatures in captivity.
A mesmerizing psychological thriller with a killer whale at its centre, Blackfish is the first film since Grizzly Man to show how nature can get revenge on man when pushed to its limits.
CNN is showing the final encore of Blackfish tonight at 9pm.
