Certificate 15 / Alex Camilleri | Maltese | 2021 | 95 minutes | English and Maltese with English subtitles

Real-life fisherman Jesmark Scicluna leads a cast of largely non-professional actors in this impressive study of an industry – and way of life – in crisis. Will he eke out a meagre living at sea for his wife and new-born son? Or will he decommission his boat in exchange for an EU pay out and cast his lot with a
black-market operation that is decimating the Mediterranean fish population and local livelihoods. RM

“It’s an impressive feature debut from the Maltese filmmaker, making the most of stunning setting and performances.” Nikki Baughan, BFI
