Breaking Glass Pictures Acquires Peter Jay Brown’s follow-up to the multiple-award-winning, behind-the-scenes feature-documentary on Captain Paul, Whale Wars and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and dives into the depths of environmental movement
“A freedom fighter”
“So rascally in tone you might expect “yo-ho-ho’s” and festive eye-patches.”
Dennis Harvey, Variety
“This is mostly raw battle footage – it is valuable for its depiction of how campaigns really work.”
The Los Angeles Times
Breaking Glass Pictures is thrilled to announce the acquisition of director and producer Peter Jay Brown’s (Entertainment Tonight, Real People, Confessions of an Eco-Terrorist) latest no-holds-barred environmental feature documentary, Eco-Terrorist: The Battle for our Planet.
The deal was completed between Rich Wolff of Breaking Glass Pictures and Lon Haber, on behalf of the film.
“Breaking Glass Pictures is proud and honored to be associated with Eco-Terrorist, and to help get the message out about these brave men and women who are not afraid to risk their lives to save the planet”, said Wolff.
Eco-Terrorist: The Battle for our Planet follows the most wanted environmentalist today, Captain Paul Watson. In this unique and groundbreaking film, Brown takes a deeper look into what really goes on behind the scenes in the deep waters of our world. After 40 years on the frontlines, Brown that More pranks, the glory of successful missions, and fiercer encounters with some of the most infamous and illegal marine hunters, while stopping at nothing to protect wildlife on a global scale. The film takes the audience right to the frontlines of the modern day environmental movement via those who started it.
Filmmaker and longest-serving Sea Shepherd Conservation Society (SSCS) crewmember, first mate to Captain Paul Watson and a captain in his own right, Peter Jay Brown reunites his ruthless cast in this Post Whale-Wars feature documentary that captures all sides of the SSCS from its inception to this very day. Included is even more never-before-seen footage of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society Campaigns featuring Renegade Environmentalists and their Guerilla Tactics.
“We are beyond thrilled to be working with Rich and the amazing team at Breaking Glass Pictures to bring the highly anticipated follow-up to Confessions of an Eco-Terrorist to audiences around the globe,” said Lon Haber, a producer on the film and CEO and Founder of Lon Haber & Company. “Eco-Terrorist: The Battle for our Planet does an impeccable job of bringing the message home, one to which the entire world can relate, enjoy and become highly inspired.”
Sneaking about, trouble-making, and at times humorous tricks play a role in trying to put an end to the brutal slaughter of these helpless animals.
According to Brown, “My films and television shows on the environment were all about how we started a revolution on a shoestring of tactics and often deceit. Eco-Terrorist: The Battle for our Planet shows how the struggle has been eclipsed by eco-corporations and money that have overshadowed the efforts of the true activists. Saving the planet involves each and every one of us. This is why I have returned to grass roots activism.”
Eco-Terrorist: The Battle for our Planet is slated for a fall 2019 release.
Film credits include: Director/producer Peter Jay Brown, producer Elora West, writer Timothy Wade Huntley and executive producers Lon Haber and Lawrence Mortoff with music composed by Drew Schnurr.
