Eco-film takes Cannes by storm
by Liza Foreman
British film-business veteran Robbie Little is enjoying great success at the Cannes Market with Confessions of an Eco Terrorist, which premiered here on Tuesday and is breaking ground in the world of feature documentaries.
The film played to a sold-out audience here at the festival, and is close to closing several major deals though The Little Film Company, which is handling sales. Details are set to follow later this week.
Confessions of an Eco Terrorist chronicles 30 years of what is described as unconventional environmentalism, at its most effective and most entertaining via new footage of the world famous (and infamous) Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.
Established in 1977, Sea Shepherd is an international, non-profit marine wildlife conservation society. Their mission is to end the destruction and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans.
Three decades in the making by Peter Brown, a Sea Shepherd insider and filmmaker, the film shows how a small group of vigilantes, whose mission is to protect Mother Nature’s creations and show the world the atrocities committed against her, can effectively do just that.
