Last Hijack

Somali Mohamed’s family depends on his income from piracy. Sensing the end of an era, he must decide if he should risk everything on one last hijack. Through his eyes a dramatic tale about survival in Somalia unfolds. How did Mohamed come to live this dangerous existence? LAST HIJACK is both a feature-length film, combining documentary footage and animation, and an online transmedia experience, allowing viewers a unique and original way to explore the subject from different perspectives.
