Directed by Timothy Michael Gorski, Lolita: Slave to Entertainment is a controversial documentary centering around the quality of life provided to a theme-park killer whale named Lolita. Though the powers that be at the Miami Seaquarium insist that Lolita is living out a more than suitable existence, interviews and undercover footage reveal that the multi-billion dollar marine theme park industry is not as benevolent as it is purported to be. Lolita won the award for Best Documentary at the New Jersey International Film Festival.
