Written by Jordan Raup
After narrative films such as Captain Phillips and Fishing Without Net took a look at the hostage crisis in Somali, we’ll soon get a documentary exploring a specific angle. The Somali Project, which comes from directors Shawn Efran and Adam Ciralsky, takes a look at the creation of Puntland Maritime Police Force (PMPF), a group of private mercenaries who formed to battle the pirates and hijackers who are disrupting the country and its coastal waters.
Ahead of a festival run, it’ll be debuting on iTunes this Friday and today we’re pleased to premiere the exclusive trailer for the film. It sells a thrilling exploration of this difficult crisis as it looks at both the main subjects and those affected by it. Check it out here, along with the synopsis, poster, stills, and information about those involved.
