New Interactive Documentary Explores Piracy in Somalia
Last Hijack is a new interactive documentary demystifying piracy in Somalia. Using a hybrid of live-action and animation, the documentary viewer can navigate between the point of view of the English captain who was hijacked and through the eyes of a pirate.
The project was conceived by directors Femke Wolting and Tommy Pallotta working with the Submarine Channel, an online platform for original transmedia dramas, documentaries and genre-defying entertainment. Last Hijack gives the viewer freedom to explore the story in their own unique way.
In the video below, the directors explain their motives for creating this original documentary about a complex issue.
