Jeff Beal’s Blackfish on iTunes

The soundtrack for the documentary Blackfish,  written by SESAC composer Jeff Beal,  is now available on iTunes.  Blackfish is a 2013 documentary film directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite and recounts the story of notorious killer whale Tilikum, responsible for the deaths of three individuals, including a top killer whale trainer and illustrates the often devastating consequences of keeping such creatures in captivity. Director Gabriela Cowperthwaite uses shocking footage and emotional interviews to present a convincing case against keeping these wild animals for human entertainment. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 19, 2013 and was picked up by Magnolia Pictures for wider release.
