Gabriela Cowpertwaite Black Fish Analysis

Satisfactory Essays

‘Black Fish’, directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite, is a thought provoking documentary that encourages you to consider the plight of a killer whale named Tilikum. The executive producers, Judy Bart, Erica Khan and director Gabriela Cowperthwaite created this documentary to enhance the viewer’s knowledge of killer whale captivity at Sea land of the Pacific in Victoria, British Columbia and Sea World, Orlando. The documentary asks the audience to view the whales with sympathy because they are victims of a horrible up-bringing, the whale hunters as villains and the Sea World trainers oblivious to all that is happening around them. The director prudently selects language, audio, structure and visuals to attain these goals.
