Alex Camillieri made great success with Lazzu at this year’s Sundance film festival. The film is about a fisherman who is pressured to abandon his traditional profession. Jesmark has just become a father when the family is put in a new difficult financial situation. Fishing is a source of pride that has supported his family for generations and is much more than a job for him, but now he is thrown into a world of poaching and black markets. The Maltese pearl Luzzu is a captivating odyssey through the murky backwaters of the European fishing industry, where through Jesmark’s desperate gaze we find both hope and despair.
– Daniel Tollefsen Altamirano
