Last Hijack Interactive (2014)
Mirka Duijn, Femke Wolting, Tommy Pallotta Commissioned by Submarine Channel

Last Hijack Interactive is an INTERNATIONAL DIGITAL EMMY AWARD and PRIX EUROPE winning online trans-media experience that allows you to explore the hijacking of a ship in Somalia.

The Last Hijack Hijack Project exists out of two counterparts: a feature length documentary by Femke Wolting & Tommy Pallotta, and an Interactive counterpart directed by Mirka Duijn in collaboration with Femke Wolting.

Exploring many sides of the story, Last Hijack Interactive allows one to uncover the complex realities behind piracy in Somalia though the eyes of a pirate and a captain, the pirates parent and the captains wife. Combining live-action video and animation, the interactive experience gives the user the opportunity to navigate the stories of these characters, building to the hijack itself and the resulting aftermath, embedding their stories in the geo-political context of that time.
