MALTA TO MOTOR CITY
This observational documentary short captures the Maltese migrant experience in Michigan, USA with the help of the Maltese community. Malta to Motor City comes from first-time Malta based director and producer Charlie Cauchi. Spending time at two Maltese clubs in Michigan in 2017, Cauchi creates a portrait of emigre life for this minority community. Cauchi said of the experience, “I’d walk into a Maltese club and I’d forget where I was. Then I’d step back outside and say – oh, hold on, I’m not in Malta anymore. It was fascinating”.
