Last Hijack Interactive is an online transmedia experience that allows you to explore the hijacking of a ship in Somalia. Exploring both sides of the story, Last Hijack Interactive allows you to uncover the complex realities behind piracy in Somalia though the eyes of a pirate and a captain, an advocate and a journalist, a parent and a wife. Combining live-action video and animation, the interactive experience gives the user the opportunity to navigate the real stories of these people, building to the hijack itself and the resulting aftermath. How can one such event influence an entire society? What’s the global impact of a single hijack? The interactive experience is the counterpart to Last Hijack, a semi-animated feature length film directed by Femke Wolting and Tommy Pallotta.
