The local non-governmental organisation, Flimkien għal Ambjent Aħjar (FAA), is set to be showing to Maltese award-winning film Luzzu at Villa Bologna on Wednesday, 20th September.

So, if you missed the chance to see it when it was in cinemas, now is the time.

Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets and their own chairs or cushions as they get to enjoy the chance to watch Luzzu under the stars of the magical Villa Bologna gardens.

Apart from watching the film, one of film’s producers will also be present to talk more about the film through a Q&A session being held after the end of the film.

A food and drink stall will also be available selling snacks, wine and other non-alcoholic drinks.

Tickets can be purchased through here. Children under 10 go in for free.

Luzzu, was directed and written by Alex Camilleri and was largely filmed in Malta’s fishing village of Marsaxlokk. It centres around a Maltese fisherman who upon facing challenges that threaten his family and livelihood, enters Malta’s black-market fishing industry.

It made its debut at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival and went on to win a number of awards.

The New York Times described the film as “Captur[ing] something special – not one man’s crisis, but a community’s culture”.

It’s definitely a film worth seeing and will be shown in Maltese with English subtitles.
