Share this post

The Cable News network will feature a second showing of the controversial film "Blackfish" this weekend. The movie that the Orlando Sentinel has called an "anti-SeaWorld documentary," offers a dark perspective on the highly publicized story of a killer whale taking the life of it's trainer during a show at SeaWorld in Orlando early in 2010--that trainer being Cedar Lake native and 1987 Andrean High School graduate Dawn Brancheau.   According to the Times, Brancheau's death is prominently featured along with interviews from former marine trainers, court testimony and comments from animal experts. The late trainer's sister, a region resident is also interviewed with the last 10 minutes of the film dedicated to the annual local Dream Big Walk, started in her memory by her family, according to the article.  Blackfish airs on CNN Sunday, October 27,2013 at 8p.m. local time.
