Jean-Michel Cousteau to Introduce ‘Blackfish’ Film at Free Screening at Crane Country Day School

Crane Country Day School is proud to present Jean-Michel Cousteau, renowned environmentalist, educator and film producer, for an educational introduction to the documentary Blackfish.

He will share his message and passion about the importance of better understanding the complexity of the amazing whales featured in the film.

In the documentary Blackfish, director-producer Gabriela Cowperthwaite tells the story of Tilikum, a performing killer whale, through shocking footage and emotional interviews in this emotionally wrenching story. The film explores the creature’s extraordinary nature, reveals the lives and losses of the trainers, examines the multi-billion-dollar sea-park industry, and challenges us to consider our relationship with nature.

The screening will begin at 7 p.m. Thursday in Cate Hall at Crane Country Day School, 1795 San Leandro Lane in Montecito. Admission is free.

The introduction will be approximately 20 minutes. The film running time is 90 minutes; it's rated PG-13 and not appropriate for children younger than sixth grade.

— Katy Berrey is a development officer for Crane Country Day School.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
