Confessions of an Eco-Terrorist (Confessions) is not your typical eco-film. Seen through the eyes of activist Peter Jay Brown (from Whale Wars), Confessions grants the viewer an intimate look at shipboard life amongst these self-proclaimed animal saviors and sea rebels, the ones who helped shape the Green Movement we know and love today.
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.
The hard-nosed cast of characters in the film exude bravery and wit, all while engaging in action-packed conflict including boarding ships, arrests, ramming of illegal fishing vessels as well as sinking of pirate whalers.
These activists have dedicated their lives to decades of campaigns to halt the atrocities committed worldwide against sea mammals. After watching the film, one cannot help but be inspired to go out and create change, working to make a difference in the world.
