Not your typical eco-film, it is seen through the eyes of television director, filmmaker, activist and longest serving Sea Shepherd crew member, Peter Jay Brown (Entertainment Tonight, Real People and Whale Wars).

Confessions grants the viewer an intimate look at shipboard life among these animal saviours and sea rebels, the ones 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 halted illegal fishing activities, putting a damper on the efforts of whalers, illegal drift-netter, long liners and seal hunters operating illegally worldwide for 30 years.

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 whaling ships and illegal fishing vessels.

It starts at 7.30pm on Thursday, July 11. Doors open 7.30pm. Suggested donation of £5 on the door.
