Stolen Seas Monday, May 19, 2014 at 7pm
We are pleased to announce that Thymaya Payne, Director of Stolen Seas, will speak after the film and answer questions.
Stolen Seas presents a chilling exploration of the Somali pirate phenomenon. Utilizing interviews and unparalleled access to pirates, hostages, hostages' relatives, ship-owners, and pirate negotiators, Stolen Seas is an eye opening refutation of preconceived ideas on how piracy has become a multi-million dollar growth industry.

South Sudan became an independent state in July 2011, following almost 50 years of civil war. The new nation forms a national soccer team, led by Zoran Djordjevic, a dynamic and ambitious veteran coach from Serbia. The film follows the team over its first year. What follows is a darkly comic and original portrait of the birth of a nation.
