Blood on the Crown is one of two movies on the list that falls under the ‘Maltese production’ category. Formerly titled Storbju and Just Noise, the film is a 2021 Maltese Canadian American film directed by Davide Ferrario based on the 1919’s Sette Giugno events. In fact, this film will be aptly shown on its public holiday.
Merjen is the second Maltese production film that tells the story of two childhood friends who grow up to become lovers. Motherhood is at its core theme while it also tells tales of domestic abuse and murder.
