The original Maltese film Luzzu and its leading actor Jesmark Scicluna have continued to receive more honours as the film has now been bought by the American distribution company Kino Lorber.
The future for all those who worked on the production of this film, which has the Maltese seas as its backdrop, is very promising as the film is expected to be released later this year.
Written and directed by Alex Camilleri, the story is about a young fisherman who ends up taking great risks when he gets involved with illegal fishing in order to be able to feed his family.
Luzzu is the first film shot in Malta to have competed in a major international festival where it was received with honours.
Behind the film there is also the talent and hard work of Rebecca Anastasi, Ramin Bahrani (“The White Tiger,” “99 Homes”), Alex Camilleri and Oliver Mallia.
