Brown, Peter. Bekenntnisse eines Öko-Terroristen. USA: SnagFilms, 2010. HD, 90 min.

Confessions of an Eco-Terrorist takes an intimate look at shipboard life amongst the animal saviors and sea rebels of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Their fleet of ships has for thirty years halted illegal fishing activities, putting a damper on the efforts of whalers, illegal drift-netter, long liners and seal hunters operating illegally worldwide. These activists have dedicated their lives to decades of campaigns against the atrocities committed worldwide against sea mammals. Seen through the eyes of television director, filmmaker, activist and longest serving Sea Shepherd crew member, Peter Jay Brown, the film follows Captain Paul Watson and fellow crew members, whose exploits are as much comedy as cause. (Source: Adapted from the Official Film Website)
