Alex Camilleri - 2021 - 94m - Malta - In Maltese with English subtitles - NO MATINEES

WINNER: Sundance Film Festival-Special Jury Prize for the lead actor / Official selection: New Directors/New Films

Luzzu tells the fictional story of Jesmark, a struggling fisherman, who is forced to turn his back on generations of tradition and risk everything by entering the world of black-market fishing to provide for his wife and newborn baby.

“Malta’s views are arresting, but the images Camilleri chooses would never be found in a travel brochure. In his subtle, vérité approach, he captures something special — not one man’s crisis, but a community’s culture.” - The New York Times

“A ravishing portrait of tradition in transition… teems with old-world beauty.” – RogerEbert.com

“A moving tale of real-world strife... part observational drama, part social thriller.” – The Hollywood Reporter
