Breaking Through the Clouds (directed by Zach Affolter) tells the sad, true story of Tokitae, the orca known by most as Lolita. Captured in the nearby waters of the Salish Sea as a young whale and taken from her family, she has been forced to spend the last 44 years in an illegally-sized tank at the Miami Seaquarium. The filmmaker hopes that people will walk away from this film with a better understanding of why keeping creatures like this in captivity is so wrong.
