‘A Hijacking’ will be screened at The Source Arts Centre, Thurles on Wednesday, December 4th at 8pm.
In ‘A Hijacking’ a cargo ship is seized by Somali pirates while making its way home in Tobias Lindholm’s multi award-winning Danish drama.
During a return trip across the Indian Ocean the MV Rozen falls into the hands of opportunistic pirates who take the crew hostage and demand millions from the shipping company back home in Denmark. As the terrified crew are forced to endure an agonising wait for rescue, the company’s CEO in Copenhagen, Peter Ludvigsen (Søren Malling) enters tense negotiations with their captors to find a resolution. But as the pirates step up their ransom demand and Ludvigsen stubbornly stands his ground, time begins to run out for the hostages.
