          Anne Frank was born in Frankfurt on 12th June 1929 and this year she would have been 90 years old. The documentary film tells the story of her life through the pages of her diary: an extraordinary text that has made the tragedy of Nazism known to millions of readers all over the ...world, and revealed the brilliant, enlightening intelligence of a young girl who wanted to become a writer. Annes story is intertwined with that of five Holocaust survivors, teenage girls just like her, with the same ideals, the same desire to live, the same courage: Arianna Szrenyi, Sarah Montard, Helga Weiss and sisters Andra and Tatiana Bucci. Helen Mirren will introduce audiences to Annes story through the words in her diary. The set will be her room in the secret refuge in Amsterdam, reconstructed in every detail. Off the set, a young girl, will lead us on a journey to get to know the places that were part of Anne Franks short life and her feelings. She wants to know about the story of the Jewish teenager who became a symbol of the greatest tragedy of the 20th Century, and she also speaks to us through social networks. In fact, photos and posts are her language, and in this way she gives us her interpretation of what she discovers, sees, from the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany (where Anne and her sister Margot died) to the Holocaust Memorial in Paris, up to and including her visit to the secret refuge in Amsterdam.

          Narrated by Dan Aykroyd, 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. Produced in Australia and successfully financed through a global crowdfunding effort, where over 750 passionate environmentalists pledged funds, Defend, Conserve, Protect took more than four years to make, and was shot across France, The Netherlands, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Antarctica.
