RE-ROUTING ROOTS

RE-ROUTING ROOTS

The Strada Stretta Concept, under the auspices of the Valletta 2018 Foundation presents 'Re-Routing Roots', a documentary film directed by Astarti Athanasiadou, under the artistic direction of Giuseppe Schembri Bonaci.

The documentary aims to depict and embody the former reality elements of Strait Street, such as eroticism, violence, intensity, excitement, passion and the use of live arts (cabaret, singing, acting) as labour for attraction and capital.

  • How does this dissolve in today's' situation?
  • Which images still withhold the essence of the "gut"? 
  • How do we recognise them and learn from them? 
  • How do we revive the memory of the "glorious days" and attempt to identify today’s “glory” instead of perpetuating nostalgic reproduction?

Entrance to this event is free of charge.
