"Havarie" (in Maltese) at Teatru Salesjan (31 Oct - 2 Nov.)

Havarie play 

From Homer's Odyssey to the thousands of migrants landing on the Mediterranean shores every year: Perilous sea-journeys are an integral part of our lives, myths and story-telling – not only in Europe, but across the globe. And at the beginning of each sea-journey stands the promise of a new world, a better world beyond the waves ...

Lost Goose Theatre Company presents 'Havarie': a story of two sisters who board a boat and leave their home. What drives them forwards is not only the fear of what they left behind, but hope for deliverance, for adventure, for being reunited with their loved ones. And so they carry on across the sea, aided only by the stars, a seal, and the stories they tell each other. They have to brave wind and weather, hunger and thirst, and their growing loneliness. But the greatest danger they have to face is rooted in a dark secret about the day their home got attacked ...

This performance is taking place from Friday 31 October till Sunday 2 November, at 2000hrs.

Frank Miller Event (15 Sep.)

Euro Media Forum and Eden Cinemas, present The Frank Miller event at The Sofa Cinema at University Msida Campus on Monday 15th September at 6.30 p.m. Frank Miller re-defined the presentation of comic book characters and heroic fiction for the big screen by bringing to the fore a deeper and darker vision form of noir storytelling through conflicted characters to both comic fans whilst attracting a new adult audience. Miller’s revolutionary work was launched with his grand-daddy of graphic novels, The Dark Knight Returns that not only was a source of inspiration for Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy but ensured that his uniquely dark take on the comic book narrative would leap onto the big screen. Certainly chief among Miller’s works is 300 directed by Zack Snyder which was filmed with a super-imposition chroma key technique, to help replicate the imagery of the original comic book. However, Hollywood’s Dark Knight truly outdid himself when he directed Sin City together with Robert Rodriguez. Sin City blew audiences away with its hardboiled characters and unique colour processing that managed to make a film look more like a comic book come to life as opposed to just a live-action film and the entertainment industry finally recognized that a comic book can be literally translated not adapted for the big screen.

Guest speakers’ comic book researcher David Pace and film researcher Justin Camilleri will lead the audience into a greater appreciation for this American writer, artist, and film director. The speakers will give an insight into how Miller’s dark comic book storytelling marked the moment comics stopped being so colourful and his succeeding to translate his comic book world of silvery shadows to the big screen managed to revive the expressionist cinematography of postwar film noir for a new generation.

The audience is invited to participate and put forward to the guest speaker their questions, curiosities and observations. To spice up the evening there will also be a  Frank Miller quiz, with the opportunity to win cinema tickets and a free pizza meal for two. So quiz participants must keep their eyes open for Frank Miller’s sinful clues! The film discussion is being done in collaboration with Eden Cinemas, Vintage Boutique (Savoy Arcade, Valletta), Comics in Education and Giotto restaurant. Entrance is free however limited seating is available.

Celebrating thirty years this year, A Nightmare on Elm Street directed by Wes Craven is one of the most intelligent and terrifying horror films of the 1980s and introduced the world to Freddy Krueger (Richard Englund) the horribly scarred man with the ragged slouch hat and the iconic metal gloves with knives at the tips.

Guest Speaker Dr Krista Bonello Rutter Giappone will lead the audience into a greater appreciation for this horror film, how this film intelligently probes into the audience’s terror of nightmares and combines it with another horrific element – the very real fear of killers roaming around one’s own street. Dr Bonello Rutter Giappone will give an interesting insight into how this film at its time of release brought hope to fans of the genre in an era in which the horror film had become little more than a mindless exercise in gratuitous high tech blood-letting.

The audience is invited to participate and put forward to the guest speaker their questions, curiosities and observations. To spice up the evening there will also be a Nightmare on Elm Street film quiz, with the opportunity to win cinema tickets and a free pizza meal for two. So quiz participants must keep their eyes open for Freddy Krueger’s deadly clues!

After completing a postgraduate diploma in notarial law (also in Malta), she went on to obtain an MA in Renaissance Drama, at the Shakespeare Institute in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Marnie 50th Anniversary – Tippi Hedren: Hitchcock’s last blonde (29 Jul.)

Euro Media Forum, in collaboration with Bottegin Palazzo Xara, present the Marnie 50th anniversary event at Palazzo Xara, Rabat on Tuesday 29 July at 2030hrs. Celebrating fifty years this year, Marnie is Alfred Hitchcock’s most liberated and poetic film. Following her film debut in Hitchcock’s The Birds, Tippi Hedren plays the titular character Marnie Edgar, a serial office burglar who travels from city to city seeking secretarial employment and then breaks into the office safes. Until one day, Marnie’s boss Mark Rutland (Sean Connery) discovers she’s a thief and rather than turning her in, proposes marriage eventually discovering her deep seated fears that threaten their tranquility. Guest speaker Kim Dalli will lead the audience into a greater appreciation for this classic film, how it became renowned as a masterpiece of psychological mystery mirroring all of Hitchcock’s obsessions – the unleashing of suppressed female sexuality, strong willed mothers, duplicitous personalities, false identities, childhood trauma and Hitchcock’s passionate love for icy looking blonde starlets.

Ms Dalli will give an interesting insight into how Hitchcock’s deep obsession with Tippi Hedren during the production contributed to the disquieting tone of the film. As well as the uncharacteristic film technique that makes the audience wonder and question whether Tippi Hedren was a femme fatale off the screen. Mysteries will be revealed, if there, was ever a real crime taking place between the film takes as a result of Hedren’s and Hitchcock’s stormy relationship. Ultimately, Marnie earned Tippi Hedren the most coveted title of them all: Hitchcock’s last screen blonde.

The audience is invited to participate and put forward to the guest speaker their questions, curiosities and observations. To spice up the evening there will also be a Marnie film quiz, with the opportunity to win cinema tickets and a free pizza meal for two. So quiz participants must keep their eyes open for Marnie’s deadly clues! This event is being done in collaboration with Bottegin Palazzo Xara, St Paul Street, Rabat, Giotto restaurant and Eden Cinemas. Price is Euro 10 per person including wine and platter. Limited seating is available. For bookings please email euromediaforum@gmail.com or send an sms to 99454066, or log onto Facebook

Kim Dalli is a journalist and actress. She harbours a keen interest in the classical Hollywood narrative, especially movies directed by the Master of Suspense Alfred Hitchcock.  She is also fascinated by the Tudor era and Greek Mythology.  She is reading for a Masters in Modern and Contemporary Literature and Criticism, her research interests being disability studies, deconstruction and psychoanalysis.
