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.
