This is the first comprehensive film to reveal the long and sordid history of the captive whale and dolphin entertainment business. Many of these marine parks and aquariums are directly or indirectly responsible for the death of thousands of the very animals they use for public entertainment. Premature deaths. Trainer injuries. Illegal practices. Educational misrepresentation. Government incompetence. Secret deals. These and many other issues are presented, and documented for the first time in this powerful documentary, narrated by actor Mike Farrell.

The Gods Discuss “A Fall From Freedom”
“Straight-forward and educational…the film succeeds and excels in its own way and style – it’s worth taking a look.”
“The film is narrated calmly enough to allow the viewer to become enraged without resorting to yelling. Fall is worth watching. It’s heartbreaking and solidly factual, covering the history of the whale and dolphin business from Monsanto to Sea World. This film should help make people care.”
Mimi Dwyer, Sierra Club
“This film is a powerful and factual documentary on the emotional issue of dolphins and whales in captivity. This is the first film to expose the long and sordid history of the captive whale and dolphin business. I dare you to not be affected.”
A Fall From Freedom is an important contribution to the world featuring in-depth conversations with scientists, biologists, animal trainers and activists. The film could not be more timely and is of crucial importance to animals and humans everywhere…”
