Gaming Film Fridays: Last Hijack (Dir. Femke Wolting and Tommy Pallotta, 2014)

Fri, Apr 08, 2016 | 3:00 pm

Beginning February 12, join us for films that intersect with the Libraries’ spring 2016 Games Without Frontiers series. This semester’s critically-acclaimed films focus on the ties between games, the military, and violence.

This film combines animation and documentary footage to tell a story from the perspective of Somali pirate, Mohamed. Through the use of video-game-style animation, the filmmakers explore Mohamed’s memories, dreams, and fears, juxtaposed against a nonfiction, live-action narrative.
