But you should also know him as the orca who was torn away from his family as a baby and who’s since gone mad from the confinement and neglect that he’s experienced after more than 20 years of imprisonment at SeaWorld and other marine parks.
In theaters this July, the critically acclaimed film Blackfish pieces together Tilikum’s emotional and gut-wrenching story by compiling shocking, never-before-seen footage as well as heartbreaking interviews with people who know the orca better than anyone—his trainers.
