Competition - Fiction

Luzzu

By Alex Camilleri

Jesmark's difficulties are mounting, with his fishing boat taking on water and his baby needing expensive medical care. How can an artisan survive when faced with European regulations and dwindling resources? In his debut film, Alex Camilleri pays tribute to Italian neo-realism and gives a voice to those oft-forgotten thanks to a remarkable non-professional cast.
