Breaking Through The Clouds
This short film is about the captive orca Tokitae, also known as Lolita, who is held at the Miami Seaquarium. It is a fictional narrative in which she battles with her feelings of despair being in solitude for so long. Lolita remembers her life before her capture. These memories soon consume her and suddenly her mother's last words echo through her mind. She realizes that “love cannot be confined” and this allows her to be “unbreakable forevermore.” The film premiered at Phinfest, and was an official selection for Friday Harbor Film Festival and Miami Independant Film Festival.
Be Strong - Tribute To The Dolphins of Taiji
This video, dedicated to the albino dolphin Angel and the dolphins of Taiji, is about overcoming grief, loneliness, and despair. Angel rises above these emotions by realizing that her family and mother are still with her and that love is like the stars. Even when you can't see it, it is still shining.
Horror Show - Orkid's Sad Story
This video is about the captive-born killer whale Orkid, who resides at SeaWorld San Diego. It describes her sad life and existence in captivity, and begs the question of whether this is the way these animals should live. Her story is filled with sorrow and is a perfect example of the detrimental effects of captivity on these beautiful creatures.
