The New Movie Called *The Pirates of Somalia*
Instinct.Poet posted a topic in Generaljust saw the movie called " The Pirates Of Somalia". I realize it may not play in major theatres. Though, it has academy award winning actors like Al-Pacino or Academy nominated Like Barkhad Abdi. I have my reservations as to why it is not being played in any of the theatres and had to travel about 45mins outside the cities. I have seen my fair share of pirate movies done in Somalia, Some exaggerated Hollywood style where the American always wins, Some focus on the dialogue more than the action and gun-toting and the suspense. However, this particular one told the story of a Journalist wannabe who spends 5 months in Garowe and Puntland after listening to the advice of his friend to go somewhere dangerous and live to tell about it. He later learns that the truth isn't what the media is after, but to be supplied clips for the stories they already have. Ps. If ever it does matter I have done very small work in this movie as well:-)
