Confessions Of An Eco-Terrorist
Directed by Peter Jay Brown | USA | 2010 | 90min | (Q&A)
CONFESSIONS OF AN ECO-TERRORIST is not your typical eco-film. Activist Peter Jay Brown reveals an intimate look at shipboard life among the self proclaimed animal saviors and sea rebels who helped shape the Green Movement. Alongside Captain Paul Watson of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Peter and fellow crew members’ exploits are as much comedy as cause. These extremists proudly fly their version of the skull and crossbones while performing extraordinary feats of daring on the high seas, while at the same time fighting internally over the benefits of a vegetarian vs. vegan diet. Their fleet of ships has for thirty years halted illegal fishing activities, inflicting damage to whalers, illegal drift-netters, long liners, and seal hunters operating illegally worldwide. These activists have dedicated their lives to decades of campaigns to halt the atrocities against sea mammals. After watching the film, one cannot help but be inspired to create change and work to make a difference in the world. - Adapted from Confessions of An Eco-Terrorist Website
