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.

The 2012 film "Encounters with an Egalitarian" by the French Swiss director Gwennaël Bolomey gives us the golden opportunity to see into the mind of Yves Bonnardel - a French activist committed to egalitarianism and animal causes and the author of numerous articles, pamphlets and essays. The two men, longtime friends, met on several occasions, both at Yves's countryside retreat and at activist events. These interviews help to sketch a portrait of a thinker who, in the last twenty years, has had a very strong influence on the French-speaking anti-speciesism movement.

Every year, between 4 and 5 million animals are trapped and killed in the United States for the commercial fur trade. Millions more are killed because they accidentally stumble into traps meant for other species. CULL OF THE WILD examines the history and the legacy of the trapping industry in America today. The film explains and demonstrates different types of traps, and the viewer gets to see trapping from the point of view of the trapper as well as the animals. Interviews with wildlife biologists, veterinarians, and other experts detail the dangers to "nontarget" wildlife and household pets as trappers move away from commercial trapping and begin to specialize in killing "nuisance" animals.
