Of Time and the Sea (Baħar Żmien), dir. Peter Sant, Malta / United Kingdom 2018, 94 min., Maltese with English subtitles
Australian director Peter Sant’s debut feature is a Maltese-language film about stasis and slow change.
On a remote island, an elderly man wracked with dementia dreams he was once a king. His two daughters exist alongside him in a strange region that has recently succumbed to a bizarre malady of mysterious origin. Following a series of encounters with a Chinese billionaire desperate to contract the disease, an obnoxious neighbour, and a sousaphone player in search of his band mates, the malady threatens to return. The social order, already precarious, crumbles as the virus takes hold once again.
This UK Premiere screening is followed by a Q&A with director Peter Sant hosted by ICA CINEMA Distribution Coordinator Raquel Morais.
