SnagFilms Announces the U.S. Release of

                                  Confessions of an Eco-Terrorist

on Earth Day, April 22, 2012
 
 
 
 
SnagFilms, one of the world’s leading distributors of independent films for digital platforms, announces the U.S. pay-on-demand release of the highly anticipated, groundbreaking feature documentary, CONFESSIONS OF AN ECO-TERRORIST on Earth Day, April 22, 2012.
 
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 – the stars of Animal Planet’s Emmy-nominated hit series “Whale Wars.”  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, dispairing 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.
 
“We are extremely excited for audiences in the U.S. to be able to experience CONFESSIONS OF AN ECO-TERRORIST and its unmistakable environmental message,” stated Stephanie Sharis, COO of SnagFilms.  “Earth Day is the perfect time to premiere this truly revolutionary documentary.”
 
The film will be available on video on demand on Comcast, FiOs and iNDemand affiliates including Time Warner Cable, Cox and Bright House Networks, as well as digital platforms, including iTunes, VUDU, Amazon and Xbox Live
 
“Everyone has a unique talent that can make a difference in this world,” said Brown. “30 years ago hardly anyone knew what ‘ecology’ meant, now oil companies are trying to be green. We’re the guys who started the modern environmental movement and have pretty much won the revolution, now we need the right people to govern it before we reach a tipping point,” he continued.
 
Brown recently returned from Sea Shepherd’s most recent campaign (Operaion: Divine Wind) to stop illegal Japanese whaling in an Antarctic whale sanctuary. Whale Wars Season 5, premiering this summer on Animal Planet will cover the voyage in detail.
 
"There have been many films made about Sea Shepherd but none as hilarious and revealing as CONFESSIONS OF AN ECO-TERRORIST, which was three decades in the making." Captain Watson said. "Peter Brown, a Sea Shepherd insider expertly exercises aikido with his camera by turning a negative accusation into a positive confession of influential activism.”
