Read Amber Wilkinson's film review of Blackfish

Copy pictureBravo to the Sheffield Doc/Fest audience asking questions on the main extra on this Dogwoof DVD. Quizzing Gabriela Cowperthwaite at this year's festival, their questions are interesting and to the point. The answers from Cowperthwaite cover her motivations for tackling the subject in the first place, the reaction from SeaWorld and some technical ground, including the "fair use" of the marine park's own footage. It would have been nice to see an additional interview with Cowperthwaite, with a few more questions, and it's rather surprising that there are no extended interviews here, so often a feature of documentary DVD releases these days. Nevertheless, this is a solid package, rounded out with the film's trailer.
