Here's a collection of films, all of which tell unique stories and leave a lasting impression on you as a viewer. Whether you're interested in animal rights thought-pieces, human health stories or true crime narratives, there's a little bit of everything.

Through countless examples (most of which are capture on film), we see the devastating effect of tanks and the danger they pose to both human beings and the whales themselves.
