Rebecca Cremona: Simshar


Christian Tsoutsouvas chats to Rebecca Cremona, writer/director of Simshar – the first international feature film out of Malta, based on two true stories of stranding and survival at sea. They discuss telling Maltese stories, casting real refugees and fishermen, and stale popcorn at the cinema.

Simshar is now showing.
