A hardworking Maltese fisherman is faced with an agonizing choice. On one hand, he can repair his leaky luzzu (a traditional 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. On the other hand, he can decommission his boat in exchange for an EU payout and cast his lot with a sinister black-market operation that is decimating the Mediterranean fish population and the livelihoods of the local families who depend on it. LUZZU won a Sundance Jury Prize in 2021.
“A ravishing portrait of tradition in transition, LUZZU brings Malta to the forefront.” – Carlos Aguilar, Los Angeles Times
“Malta’s views are arresting, but the images Camilleri chooses would never be found in a travel brochure.” – Natalia Winkelman, New York Times
“A moving portrait of a world in flux, and one man attempting to survive the changes thrust upon him by a baffling outside world.” – Sheila O’Malley, RogerEbert.com
