THE PIRATE TAPES + Panel Discussion

UK Premiere + Panel Discussion on Somali Piracy
Dir: Rock Baijnauth & Andrew Moniz & Roger Singh & Matvei Zhivov
United States / 2011 / 72mins

Exposing piracy in Somalia from inside out, this UK Premiere of The Pirate Tapes follows Mohamed, a young Somali-Canadian as he puts himself and his camera on the line to join a pirate clan. The film peels back layers of corruption and poverty to understand the lawless situation in Somalia, as politicians fiddle foreign aid and corporations cut secret deals with warlords to dump nuclear waste.
