MPHRP Launches Pre-Departure Piracy Awareness Training And Showing Of The Film ‘A Hijacking’ (Kapringen)

The Maritime Piracy Humanitarian Response Programme (“MPHRP”) is a pan-industry alliance of ship owners, managers, manning agents, insurers and welfare associations working together with one aim, namely -:
"to assist seafarers and their families with the humanitarian aspects of a traumatic incident caused by a piracy attack, armed robbery or being taken hostage"

The launch event of MPHRPs Pre-Departure Piracy Awareness Training will be held at the SM Cinema, Mall of Asia, Pasay City Manila on 12th November 2012 at 17.30hrs. Free tickets are available by sending email to response@mphrp.org

The Pre-Departure Piracy Awareness Training for seafarers is designed for approximately 20 participants per session and will be presented in the Philippines in partnership with PAM TIC and shipping and manning companies. The aims of the course include participants analysing the guidelines contained in the Best Management Practice (BMP), being aware of the available resources and documents which give information, guidelines and recommended actions before, during and after a piracy and armed robbery incident, understanding the most common reactions of those affected by piracy and considering what they may wish to share with their family concerning the risks of piracy. The programme is funded by the ITF Seafarers Trust, TK Foundation and the IGP&I.

At the event supported by PTC, PAMTCI and AMOSUP there will be a number of speakers from international and local maritime associations and authorities and following this we will show a new film ‘A Hijacking’ the story of a vessel which is high jacked off the coast of Somalia and the emotional story of the Cook and the CEO of the company as the negotiations are carried out. Please see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QcNZsI6-J1I for trailer [below].

The Film is called A Hijacking and has been shown this year already at the Venice and London Film Festivals to great acclaim and will be on general worldwide release in 2013. The film is a Danish made production with Director-Screenwriter Tobias Lindholm, Producer René Ezra, Tomas Radoor and staring Pilou Asbæk, Søren Malling, Dar Salim it lasts 99 mins.
