The Shipwreck

What is the important event that shaped the Maltese identity, culture and Religious roots?

How did St Paul's shipwreck change the history of Malta?

This docu-drama is the narration of what has been written in the Holy Bible in The Acts of the Apostles Chapters 27 & 28.

The Shipwreck portrays the story of Saint Paul's arrival and his 3 months stay on the Maltese Islands around 60AD, with flash-forwards/backwards of the actual historical still standing remains commemorating this event.

The docu-drama is projected using a new technology of multiple projectors on a 13m wide screen (120° viewing), with amazing surround sound systems and visual effects.
