Program Description

Event Details

Considered by critics to be one of the best foreign films of 2021, and winner of the Sundance Jury Prize thanks to the powerful lead performance of real life Maltese fisherman and nonprofessional actor, Jesmark Scicluna, Luzzu is the story of a man faced with an agonizing choice. He can repair his leaky luzzu, a traditional, multicolored wooden fishing boat, in the hopes of eking out a meager living at sea for his wife and newborn son, just as his father and grandfather did before him. Or, he can decommission it in exchange for an EU payout and risk entering the sinister black-market operation responsible for decimating the Mediterranean fish population - and the livelihoods of the local families who depend on it. This film is not rated and is 94 minutes long.
