GET OUT ALIVE – SOMALI PIRATE ATTACK

In 2008, a year before “Captain Phillips”, two British security guards board the ‘Biscaglia’, an oil tanker passing through the Gulf of Aden en route to the Med.  An easy gig – ten grand in the bank and a sun tan …until the ship is hijacked by gun-toting, drug-crazed Somali pirates armed with AK47s and a rocket propelled grenade launcher.

Shot hand-held and with the grit of an observational documentary, this amazing true story (which was at the time photographed by NATO helicopters) plays out like a high adrenaline action movie.   TX December 2010.
