FILM SYNOPSIS

The Swedish warship Mars Makalös, (Mars the Magnificent), was built between 1563 and 1564. Mars was involved in one of the earliest 'modern', naval battles. It was the leading ship of King Erik XIV's fleet, and at 60 metres and equipped with 107 guns, was one of the largest warships of that time, even larger than the famous ship Vasa, which sank in 1628.


During the Northern 7 Years War in 1564, a Swedish fleet with Mars at the forefront, was sent out to destroy the invading archenemy: Denmark and Lübeck.


For many years, people believed that this legendary Renaissance ship could not be found and that it was perhaps just a myth, among many others. But in 2011, after several years of research, it was announced that an old shipwreck had been found by a team of divers, at a depth of 75 metres and around 18 kilometres north of Öland.


The Baltic sea is renowned for its preservation qualities and old wrecks can be discovered in very good condition.


Mars has a special place in history for being the first ship ever, to sink an opposing enemy ship by gunfire.

FILM SYNOPSIS

Operation Jeedara: Jeedara

A 50 minute documentary examining the consequences if BP were allowed to bring their largest oil rig into the Great Australian Bight to undertake exploratory oil drilling. It asserts that it will not be a question of if there is a spill, but when. Any damage from an oil spill would be irreversible and with the Great Australian Bight home to the world’s largest Southern Right Whale nursery and many other marine animals, this documentary questions whether the potential for oil is worth the risk in this pristine area.


Operation Jeedara documents the journey of conservation group Sea Shepherd's ship The MV Steve Irwin on campaign to film and document the beauty of the Great Australian Bight.


Operation Jairo: Why Just One

Features the story of Jairo Mora Sandoval, the sea turtle conservationist that was murdered in May 2013 in Costa Rica while working to protect leatherback turtles. A gripping documentary that explores the plight of endangered sea turtles, with particular focus on efforts by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to protect threatened species of sea turtles in Costa Rica from poachers.
