Confessions of an Eco-Terrorist (Documentary)

Watch the trailer and the full documentary below...

CONFESSIONS OF AN ECO-TERRORIST takes viewers on an action-packed voyage with the world’s most wanted environmentalist heroes, Captain Paul Watson and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Seen through the eyes of director, activist and longest serving Sea Shepherd crew member, Peter Jay Brown, the film features 30 years of never-before-seen insider footage of the most exciting, despairing and triumphant eco-campaigns in the world. During their voyages they’ve been engaged in dramatic conflict including the boarding of ships, arrests, being fired upon by the Norwegian Navy and successfully ramming and/or sinking illegal whaling and fishing vessels worldwide. The group is also credited with stopping drift-netting worldwide and saving the lives of millions of marine wildlife.

Alongside Captain Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Brown 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. 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. Spanning across the continents, Peter Brown takes us on a journey through locations such as The North Pacific Ocean, Galapagos Islands, the Faroe Islands, and Norway, illuminating the whales' and seals' perils.
