Sundance 2014 Preview: First Look At 'Somali Pirate' Drama 'Fishing Without Nets'

It's been over a year since we last updated you on Cutter Hodierne's feature film adaptation of his award-winning short film, Fishing Without Nets (won the Grand Jury Prize in Short Filmmaking at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival).

Cutter is set to return to the Sundance Film Festival, next month, to premiere the feature film adaptation of Fishing Without Nets, and we have your first look at the film.

As a recap, the short version of 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.

The feature film follows the pirate narrative in Somalia told from the perspective of a struggling, young Somali fisherman. The cast includes: Abdikani Muktar, Abdi Siad, Abduwhali Faarah, Abdikhadir Hassan, Reda Kateb, and Idil Ibrahim.

Production on the film took place last fall in parts of eastern Africa, marking Hodierne's feature film directorial debut.

The feature-length was said to be the first in a series of films VICE will produce and finance.

The team who produced the short - Raphael Swann, John Hibey, and Cutter Hodierne - return as producers, partnering with Ben Freedman and Rupert Wyatt of Picture Farm, along with Victor Shapiro.

In addition to winning the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance last year, the short film also picked up the Cinedigm Jury prize at The Wrap’s ShortList festival, and has screened at the Seattle International Film Festival, Rooftop Films, Abu Dhabi Film Festival, and was included in a 17-city tour as part of the Sundance Institute Art House Project Shorts Program.
