(LOVELADIES, NJ) -- The Lighthouse International Film Society will screen Luzzu on Wednesday, October 13 at 7:00pm at the Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences in Loveladies, NJ. Luzzu is a brilliant exercise on verité that perfectly balances the calmness of summer waves and the brutality of life.
A hardworking Maltese fisherman, Jesmark, is faced with an agonizing choice. He can repair his leaky luzzu -- a traditional, multicolored wooden fishing boat -- in the hopes of eking out a meager living at sea for his wife and newborn son, just as his father and grandfather did before him. Or he can decommission it in exchange for an EU payout and cast his lot with a sinister black-market operation that is decimating the Mediterranean fish population and the livelihoods of the local families who depend on it.
Admission $10 at door/$8 online. Admission is free for LIFSociety members. $ 5 for Reclam the Bay, Maritime Museum and LBIF members. Tickets are available for purchase online.
The Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences is located at 120 Long Beach Boulevard in Loveladies, New Jersey. The Lighthouse International Film Society would like to thank their sponsors Maritime Museum, Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences, and Reclam the Bay.
