Still thinking about PETA’s Save The Whales billboard? Love watching Whale Wars every Friday night? Then run to see At The Edge of The World and learn about the Sea Shepherd Society’s Third Antarctic Campaign.

Perhaps the most interesting difference between the documentary and the television series is the grittiness of the expedition. The jobs of the 46 volunteers appear even more dangerous, difficult, and demanding on the big screen. I don’t want to include any spoilers, but I’ll just say that there was some serious risky business going on!

Also, the strained relationship between the Sea Shepard and Greenpeace was made extremely apparent. An original member of Greenpeace, Captain Paul Watson left in 1977 (he has since called them “the Avon ladies of the environmental movement”), saying he believes in a campaign of intervention and not one of simply bearing witness. More than once, the Sea Shepherd tries to get Greenpeace in on the action…with no luck.

Opening weekend at Cinema Village in New York City included a special treat of a Q & A with director Dan Stone and cinematographer Tim Gorski. Stone claimed he doesn’t like “message movies” but it’s hard to miss the message in this one. To quote visionary Albert Einstein: “Thought without action is a crime.”
