The Cannes Film Festival this year will get a taste of eco-terrorism, as the controversial anti-whalers and hardcore conservationists descend to show their exciting documentary about their adventures.
From battling the Norwegian Navy to ramming their ship into others in choppy seas, director Peter Jay Brown’s ‘Confessions of An Eco Terrorist’ looks more exciting than anything I have seen so far.
What is particularly intriguing about this project is that not only is the film screening here, but the filmmakers have brought their ship, and moored it here at the harbour.
‘The Sea Shepherd Team’ are as infamous as can be, and after being at sea for decades, fighting for the same cause, you get the sense that they are real life ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, except, without the Disney feeling.
Screening: Tuesday, May 17, 2011
