WINNER · SPECIAL JURY AWARD · SUNDANCE

Named for the brightly coloured fishing boats entrenched in Maltese culture, Luzzu is an affecting, familial drama that took Sundance by storm.

Jesmark, feels the mounting pressure of a ruthless fishing industry cutting him out of the market, and fruitless harvests due to a stagnating ecosystem. Desperate to provide for his wife and their infant son, Jesmark is coerced into a dangerous black-market operation, torn between a generations-old tradition, and the faceless globalisation of the modern world.

Told through the unique lens of real-life Maltese fisherman, Jesmark Scicluna, Luzzu is the first Maltese production ever selected for a major film-festival competition, a ravishing portrait of tradition in transition.

“The kind of film Roberto Rossellini would have made if he were still alive today.” – World of Reel

In Maltese with English subtitles.
