About the Film
Despite key concessions by SeaWorld, its orcas are still performing every day, and in Eastern Russia the magnificent killer whale is under siege – hunted for sale into the exploding marine theme park industry in China. Witness an in-depth look at the case against captivity, the promise of The Whale Sanctuary Project, covert missions in Russian waters and the search for nine orcas held captive at a secret location in China.
Post-film Q&A with director Bill Neal via Skype. John Wells, host of KPCW’s Cool Science Radio show, will moderate the discussion.
“Long Gone Wild” was written and directed by Park City resident Bill Neal and is being presented as part of the Made in Utah Film Series – a program created to celebrate and cultivate the filmmaking community in Utah by presenting films made by Utahns or in the State of Utah.
