North American Premiere
With their feature documentary Last Hijack, Tommy Pallotta and Femke Wolting introduced audiences to Mohamed, an accomplished pirate considering a career change. Where that film ends, Last Hijack’s transmedia experience begins. Join Pallotta and Wolting as they explore the immersive components of their interactive project, offering a bird’s-eye view of the online elements of their doc that investigates modern-day piracy. Using data visualization, animation, live footage, and audio, the online experience paints a picture not of perpetrators of crimes and victims but of real people whose actions have an effect on the world around them.
