Plot synopsis
The documentary film ”Black Spot” explores modern piracy taking place in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Somalia. A film crew traveled to the region to talk with the parties directly involved in the events. The president of Puntland (the autonomous part of Somalia) granted the Russian filmmakers unique permission to shoot in his jurisdiction, in particular, inside the prison where many of the captured pirates now reside. Using a wealth of factual material, the filmmakers explore the various aspects of contemporary piracy from both sides, including the wide range of outside forces and groups that use piracy for their dubious political and commercial purposes.
