THE MALTA STORY
FEATURING COMMENTARY BY NOTED FILM AUTHORITY NEIL O’CONNOR
In 1942 Britain was clinging to the island of Malta since it was critical to keeping Allied supply lines open in the Mediterranean theater of war. The Axis also wanted it for their own supply lines. Plenty of archival combat footage will be seen as the British become besieged and try to fight off the Luftwaffe. Against this background, a Royal Air Force reconnaissance photographer’s romance with a local girl is endangered as he tries to plot enemy movements. Relive the Malta story as it unfolded 70 years ago.
