Panorama Europe - Simshar

PANORAMA EUROPE 2016. Film SIMSHAR, Presented by the Arts Council Malta New York.


Co-presented by Museum of the Moving Image and the European Union National Institutes for Culture in New York, PANORAMA EUROPE showcases contemporary European feature films.

Simshar
with director Rebecca Cremona in person

Malta. Dir. Rebecca Cremona. 2014, 101 mins. In Maltese and English with English subtitles. With Lofti Abdelli, Clare Agius, Sékouba Doucouré. A landmark for Maltese cinema, Simshar is the country’s first film to receive international distribution and its first submission for the Foreign Language Academy Award. The multi-award winning film is a heartrending tale of life and death on the Mediterranean in which the intersecting fates of two boats stranded at sea—one containing a fishing family, the other African migrants in need of medical attention—culminates in shocking tragedy. Based on a true story, Simshar is both a gripping survival tale and a poignant look at Europe’s migrant crisis.
