GROUNDBREAKING FILM RECALLS THE GREAT SEA TRAGEDY INVOLVING AFRICAN MIGRANTS AND A FAMILY FISHING BOAT
FIRST OFFICIAL ACADEMY AWARDS® SELECTION , “SIMSHAR”
SET FOR OCTOBER 1 NATIONAL CINEMA RELEASE IN AUSTRALIA
Acclaimed filmmaker Rebecca Cremona will visit in September to promote her film and present Q&A screenings September 22 – October 4
Backlot Films is proud to announce its latest release, the critically acclaimed SIMSHAR, inspired by one of Malta’s greatest recent tragedies, will be released nationally in Australia on October 1.
Writer/director, Rebecca Cremona will support the release with a promotional
tour that will see her showcase her film around the country, conducting media
interviews and Q&A screening events in selected locations.
Based upon astonishing true events, likely to resonate with Australian audiences, SIMSHAR tells two parallel stories of survival at sea which unravel on and around the Mediterranean island of Malta, culminating when a Maltese fishing family is left stranded in open water after being mistaken for African migrants.
The turmoil and hardship of human migration is played out on this small island between two continents. Today’s ongoing – and often tragic – migrant mass crossings from Africa to Europe across the Mediterranean make SIMSHAR a pertinent and timely story.
This is the first international feature film to come out of Malta, and was shot entirely on the island. SIMSHAR was also selected as Malta’s first official entry for Best Foreign Language Film in the 87th Academy Awards® and the first feature film from Malta to enter the international market.
