I'd recommend giving this a watch if anyone can spare the time. Always wanted to go to SeaWorld but my gf and I both agreed that we'll choose not to support such an organization .

Interesting. In taking this position, you suggest non-human animals have inherent publicity rights. In perspective, most countries consider humans to have only limited legal publicity rights. It's quite the leap to suggest non-human animals have them.

Whale watching's a rad experience. I went during a trip Victoria. A good ethical alternative to SeaWorld?

Not saying that's the case in this situation, but it's something to always keep in the back of your mind when watching this type of film.
I think it is so important to be mindful of the fact that ALL visual culture fed to us are framed in a way to guide our discourses. That said, we are part of a vetting culture. With the internet being so vast, with forums like this, we are able to approach things with a critical eye. I'm sure if someone was really passionate about a subject, let's use Blackfish in this case, one could just go beyond the documentary and do more research.

I think that's a better way to look at documentaries and other variants of visual culture that spark discourse. They're the catalyst. The sick feeling we get when we finish the film, that gut wrenching cloud that lingers days later...all of that amounts to an emotional push to either do something about what we've learnt, or to learn more.

Another example of excellently edited scenes would be the Kony campaign. That went viral with very little information in the actual footage shared via YouTube. So you're right, documentaries present biased opinions, perfected cut scenes and emotional evoking soundtracks. The important thing is to understand WHY these elements are in play, and how we as the audience receive it, and what we can do about it.

There wealth comes from the average Joe spending $82 on a ticket. People stop going they won't be so wealthy. Look what happened to Sealand in Victoria.

just watched it on netflix after this thread.
It is a good watch and really shows how misleading the media and seaworld is.
