a screening of the film
"Lolita: Slave to Entertainment"
Before Blackfish, there was Lolita........
Man vs. Nature: In the summer of 1970 a barbaric hunt kills five orcas and destroys the lives of countless others. Six young orcas are ripped away from their families, sold to marine parks, and shipped across the world to a life of slavery. Three decades later, only one survives. And she just so happens to be Miami's biggest performer.
This controversial independent documentary takes a disturbing look into the dark secrets of the multi billion dollar aquarium industry and questions human ethics in relationship to animals as entertainment. It is the tragic and compelling life story of Lolita, a 40 year old performing Killer Whale on display at Miami Seaquarium.
This film is scheduled to coincide in January with the Miracle March for Lolita, where hundreds of people will march in Miami on January 17th to call for the release from captivity of the world's loneliest orca.
