This artful 1998 documentary traces the history of hijacking back to the romantic '60s when skyjackers fought their revolutions and won airtime on the passenger planes of the burgeoning Jet Era. Their tactics were lost to the sands of time, however, when anonymous bombs in suitcases became the freedom fighter's tool of choice. Belgian director Johan Grimonprez investigates the politics behind this change, at the same time unwrapping our own complicity in the urge for ultimate disaster. 68 minutes
