The Dark Side of Whales & Dolphins in Captivity – Film Screening with Q & A and Book Signing at the Rotunda 4014 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104 (215) 573-3234 October 10, 2012 – doors open 6:30 pm, film begins 7:00 pm (approximate one hour), book reading and speaker presentations, 8:00 pm - Admission is FREE The local humane education organization 22reasons and Sea Shepherd of Philadelphia will be presenting a free screening of the documentary “Lolita – Slave to Entertainment.” Tim Gorski, writer, director and editor of this film as well as the recently released “How I Became an Elephant,” will speak about his experiences filming the documentary, and author David Kirby will read an excerpt from his recently published book, “Death at SeaWorld: Shamu and the Dark Side of Killer Whales in Captivity” and sign copies. Lolita is an orca confined in a small tank at the Miami Seaquarium since 1970 when she was taken from her family pod in the ocean – she was just two years old. Just this summer (August 2012), PeTA and the Animal Legal Defense Fund filed a lawsuit against the USDA challenging the renewal of Miami Seaquarium’s license. “This provocative and revealing must-see documentary uniquely addresses man’s relationship with wildlife. It speaks not only to animal lovers and activists, but to anyone at all who may have been duped by marine theme park propaganda. In fact, this is the film that an entire industry would rather you not see.” ~ Valerie Silidker – Vice President, Rattle the Cage Productions www.slavetoentertainment.com
