    Ross House often screens activist films. They’re in “off season” at the moment but perhaps you could partition them back on again

    There was this really cool/inspiring documentary that I watched maybe 1 year ago, about Paul Watson, the creator of Sea Shepherd. The documentary took us through his journey of quitting his large involvement with Greenpeace and creating his own organisation for marine wildlife conservation (whaling, seal clubbing), and showed the good times and bad. Anyone know which one I’m talking about??
