A solar-powered cinema, a Maltese village steeped in history, and a rare documentary from the 1960s about local band clubs. It’s all coming, and it’s all coming this Tuesday.
The documentary was filmed way back in 1968 and is currently housed in the Australian archives, however Solar Cinema just got the rights for a one time screening of this gem which will be aired for free in Luqa (very aptly). Talking about giving back to the community!
Solar Cinema Malta is thrilled to bring us Two Trumpets For St. Andrew, an Australian documentary which tells the story of the two Luqa Band Clubs and their heated rivalry.
This documentary takes place during the British occupation of our island and goes on through the budding of our Independence, offering a very unique point of view into Maltese life at the time.
The two main protagonists of this movie are Anthony Theuma and John Calleja — two band club members who work at the Malta Dry Docks and the Military Air Base who introduce us to their deep rooted passion for their respective Luqa Band Clubs.
The one-time screening is coming to Luqa’s Zuntier tad-Dokkiena on the 22nd of May, but Solar Cinema has a very busy schedule planned for Malta and Gozo spanning all the way to October. Check out the full list below.
