WHEN: Thursday, October 10, 2013, at 7:00 p.m.
WHERE: UCLA, James Bridges Theater, Melnitz 1409
Please join CNN Films, the Animal Legal Defense Fund, and UCLA Law’s Animal Law Society for a free screening of the documentary Blackfish. This hard-hitting film has been garnering Oscar buzz for its riveting inside look into the 2010 killing of SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau by a 12,000-pound orca, Tilikum, and the lives of the orcas who live and perform at SeaWorld. The screening will be followed by a Q&A panel discussion with Blackfish filmmaker Gabriela Cowperthwaite and a representative from the Animal Legal Defense Fund, who will discuss the reality behind the performance and legal efforts to combat the suffering of orcas in captivity.
Don’t miss this special event! To RSVP for the event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your name and the number of people who will be attending with you. Seating is limited, so please RSVP today. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you!
