Filfla Gets The David Attenborough Treatment In Amazing New Underwater Documentary
Who knew we were just five kilometres away from an underwater paradise?
The Malta Airport Foundation have just launched a stunning 30-minute long documentary all about the vast marine-life surrounding this stoic rock off our shores.
If you thought Filfla was just inhabited by lizards, think again. Our islandette is home to a bucketload of unique species, like the spiny lobster and stunning moray eels that are capitalising on the lack of human interference.
The documentary has been produced by environmentalist stalwart Alan Deidun, Pedja Miletic, and Shaun Arrigo a photographer and filmmaker with a strong portfolio of marine-based work.
The film traces Filfla's unknown history – from it's role as a safe haven during the outbreak of cholera on Malta and Gozo, to more recently as a colony for different terrestrial and underwater species.
Every inch of this 15-acre rock is captured through gorgeous, captivating footage, with clear, insightful narration. It's a must-see for any nature-lover, and adds a whole new level of wow to Malta's heavenly-Mediterranean status.
