SPECIAL EVENT | Blackfish Brigade Symposium 

When the documentary "Blackfish" was released in 2013 it shocked audiences worldwide. The film focuses on the captivity of killer whale, Tilikum, who had killed three trainers at SeaWorld and the consequences of keeping killer whales in captivity. For one night, Rochester will host four ex-SeaWorld trainers and activists in the film. Samantha Berg, John Jett, Carol Ray, and Jeffrey Ventre, are the "Voice of the Orcas," speaking out against the abuse and treatment they witnessed first-hand. Speaking with them will be former MarineLand trainer Philip Demers. The night will feature short video clips and a discussion on related topics including the human impact and effects of keeping orcas and marine mammals in captivity and future solutions for marine life education.

The Symposium will take place Saturday, May 3, 7 p.m. at Kodak Center for Performing Arts (200 W. Ridge Rd). Admission is free but donations are encouraged. There will also be a Meet-and-Greet Reception with the guest speakers from 5:30-6:30 p.m. and 9-10 p.m. for $15. For more information, visit kodakcenter.org.
