Synopsis

A popular attraction at the SeaWorld theme park in Florida is the spectacular performing killer whales. Guided by human trainers, who reward them with fish, these enormous, highly intelligent creatures are kept cooped up in distressing conditions and made to entertain audiences with shows. During one of these routines, in 2010, a whale called Tilikum dragged his trainer into the water and drowned her. It was the third time Tilikum had been involved in a trainer's death. A year later he was put back to work. This harrowing documentary looks at whether it is safe and humane to keep animals like Tilikum in captivity.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
