A hardworking Maltese fisherman, Jesmark is faced with an agonizing choice.
He can repair his leaky luzzu – a traditional, multicolored 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. Or he can decommission it in exchange for an EU payout and cast his lot with an illicit operation that is decimating the Mediterranean fish population and the livelihoods of the local families who depend on it. LUZZU was Malta’s submission to the 94th Academy Awards ® and won a Sundance Jury Prize for its nonprofessional lead actor Jesmark Scicluna, a real-life Maltese fisherman. This gripping film heralds the arrival of writer-director Alex Camilleri, who operates in the neorealist tradition of Luchino Visconti and Roberto Rosselini, and calls to mind the socially engaged cinema of Ken Loach.
