The Hawaii premiere of "Confessions of an Eco-Terrorist," a documentary film by Peter Brown showing the behind-the-scenes and below-the-decks daily life aboard the Sea Shepherd takes place at 7 p.m. today at McCoy Theater, Maui Arts and Cultural Center.
Brown is one of the earliest Sea Shepherd crew members and first mate to Capt. Paul Watson. He recently launched his own Internet TV channel, EZEARTH.TV.
Confessions, an official selection for Cannes 2011, offers a realistic and humorous take on the eco-movement. It documents more than 30 years of eco-pirating work by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
Visit www.confessionsfilm.com for more about the film, which is set for its next release in Australia.
"It's time we put the real in reality television," said Brown in a press release. "We're continuing to help the world wake up to what the environmental bad guys are up to and when we catch them live, in action and red-handed, there will be no arguments about it. This platform is the next weapon in helping change the world's consciousness for a cleaner, safer plant..."
Prior to the film, enjoy a courtyard reception with Brown and Sea Shepherd crew members, who you may know best from "Whale Wars." Theater doors open at 7 p.m. Brown will stay for a Q&A after the film at 9 p.m.
There will also be a silent auction and musical performance by True Story.
Tickets are $25 from www.seashepherd.org/confessions. All proceeds benefit The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
