"Confessions of an Eco'Terrorist" will premiere in Hawaii at 7 p.m. Thursday at the McCoy Studio Theater in the Maui Arts & Cultural Center in Kahului.
It's directed by Peter Jay Brown (who's appeared on "Entertainment Tonight," "Real People," and "Whale Wars"). He was also Sea Shepherd's longest serving crew member and first mate to Capt. Paul Watson.
"Confessions" is a realistic and humorous take on the eco-movement, focusing on "positive activism" and Brown's 30-plus years of behind-the-scenes and below-the-decks action of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society.

The special event starts at 6 p.m. and will include a preshow reception with Brown and other Sea Shepherd crew members such as Deborah Bassett, star of Animal Planet's hit special series, "Viking Shores," and actor Lon Haber. There will also be a silent auction and music by True Story.
After the movie at around 9 p.m., film goers may remain for a question and answer session with Brown. Tickets are $25. All proceeds benefit Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. For tickets, call 242-7469.
