Defend Conserve Protect

Documentary

AUSTRALIA

Directed by Stephen Amis
Narrated by Dan Aykroyd

"A beautifully filmed, dangerous cat and mouse game" - The Mercury

WINNER: Best International Feature, American Documentary Film Festival 2019

Defend, Conserve, Protect pits the marine conservation group, Sea Shepherd - a passionate group of eco-activists - against the Japanese whaling fleet, in an epic battle to defend the majestic Minke whales of the Southern Ocean. These noble, curious Minkes are easy prey for the Japanese, who claim to kill in the name of science – an assertion that has been widely discredited outside Japan for years.

At the helm of Sea Shepherd is 28-year old Captain Peter Hammarstedt who carries with him the resolve of Melville's Captain Ahab - only Hammarstedt hunts the whaling ships not the whales.

This is the incredible true story of what happens when a small group of determined people stand up against an aggressive corporation flagrantly defying international law.
