About the Movie

A true tale of survival in Somalia told from the pirate’s perspective. Combining animation with documentary storytelling, Last Hijack takes an innovative hybrid approach to explore how one successful Somali pirate, Mohamed, came to live such a brutal and dangerous existence. Animated re-enactments explore the memories, dreams, and fears from a rarely seen point of view in this original non-fiction narrative.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It's an ungainly documentary featuring animated sequences, but it also gives a sense of a country ruined by tribal wars and menaced by the temptation of easy cash. – Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, Oct 2, 2014

Fresh: The filmmakers have gotten extraordinary access to Mohamed and ravaged Somalia. – Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice, Sep 24, 2014

Fresh: Despite providing a sober and hauntingly frustrated glimpse into a world that most Western eyes will never get to see for themselves, this portrait of life as a Somali pirate is limited by what the camera can't see. – David Ehrlich, AV Club, Oct 2, 2014

Fresh: It intriguingly invites us to think about the forces that can drive a seemingly ordinary guy like Mohamed to do something so desperate and cruel as piracy. – Elise Nakhnikian, Slant Magazine, Sep 29, 2014
