Watch Sundance Grand Jury Prize-Winning Somali Pirate Short 'Fishing Without Nets' (Short Shout!)

Cutter Hodierne has made his award-winning short film, Fishing Without Nets (a film we've covered a lot of this site), available for viewing online; the film won the Grand Jury Prize in Short Filmmaking at this year's Sundance Film Festival, and is on its way to becoming a feature length film (most recently, we announced that it was one of 15 projects selected to recieve a total of $200,000 in grants this year as part of the Cinereach Project at the Sundance Institute – a development grant that's doing into the feature film adaptation). 

As a recap, Fishing Without Nets centers on a naïve and desperate young Somali man who is coerced to join a band of local pirates as they embark upon a hijacking, but instead of the riches he was promised, he finds mayhem and chaos as his reward.

I wouldn't expect the feature until some time in 2013, or thereafter. 

In the meantime, watch the award-winning short HERE. And then come back here to share your thoughts.
