My Voice Announces Contest to Give Away Five Pair of Passes to the Blackfish Advance Screening in Minneapolis



The charitable t-shirt company focused on giving animals a voice has partnered with Lagoon Cinema, screening Blackfish in Minneapolis, to encourage people to see this important film.


July 24, 2013 (Minneapolis, MN) – My Voice is thrilled to learn that the movie Blackfish is coming to their home city of Minneapolis.  The message of this film is so important to help educate people about the truth behind the captive marine mammal industry. They have partnered with the theater screening Blackfish in Minneapolis and are pleased to announce a contest to give away five pairs of passes for the advanced screening on August 1, 2013.


Blackfish tells the story of Tilikum, a performing killer whale that killed several people while in captivity. Along the way, director-producer Gabriela Cowperthwaite compiles shocking footage and emotional interviews to explore the creature’s extraordinary nature, the species’ cruel treatment in captivity, the lives and losses of the trainers and the pressures brought to bear by the mulit-billion dollar sea-park industry. This emotionally wrenching, tautly structured story challenges us to consider our relationship to nature and reveals how little we humans have learned from these highly intelligent and enormously sentient fellow mammals.


There are two ways to enter to win passes.  Anyone who purchases one of our ‘Captivity Blows’ t-shirts between now and end of day July 30, 2013 will automatically be entered to win  or, you can visit their Facebook page and post on their wall what you think a captive Orca whale would say if he could speak our language.  All those who post and/or purchase by end of day 7/30/13 will be eligible to win the passes.  Five names will be drawn randomly the morning of July 31st and winners will be announced on their Facebook page and via twitter.


Lagoon Cinema is located at 1320 Lagoon Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55408.  The screening will take place on August 1, 2013 at 7:30 pm.
