Using state-of-the-art equipment, a group of activists, led by renowned dolphin trainer Ric O'Barry, infiltrate a cove near Taijii, Japan to expose both a shocking instance of animal abuse and a serious threat to human health.
Seen through the eyes of activist Peter Jay Brown, Confessions grants the viewer an intimate look at shipboard life amongst these self proclaimed animal saviors and sea rebels who shaped the green movement we know and love today. Peter and his associates' exploits are as much comedy as cause. These extremists proudly fly the skull and cross-bones while performing extraordinary feats of daring on the high seas. Their fleet of ramming vessels inflicts damage to whalers, illegal drift-netters, and seal hunters that operate illegally world-wide. The hard nosed cast of characters exude bravery and whit, all while engaging in action packed conflict including sinkings, boardings, arrests, and plenty of rammings.Written by
Watched this film at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and I was surprised in many ways, all positive.
It sheds light in the inner works of the Sea Shepherd during the last three decades in a very informative and funny way. It does this by documenting a visual journey of trips around the globe where men are slaughtering many species just because.
Peter Brown accomplishes this and much more by showing how irrational people are, in a clever and innovative way.
The first of its class in nature documentaries.
Finally, it was awesome to see and meet the filmmaker while he was answering questions from viewers. At first I thought I was the only one who liked the film but at the end everyone was raving about it.
