Il-ġbid tal-film
Il-ġbid tal-film “Ried Ikun Jaf”

Ried Ikun Jaf. Film b’direzzjoni ta’ Edward Said u produzzjoni ta’ Emma Mattei, imnebbaħ minn poeżija ta’ Mario Azzopardi. Konsulent letterarju: Immanuel Mifsud.

Edward Said
Edward Said

Il-film ta’ din is-sena inħadem minn Edward Said – aħbar eċitanti immens għax ix-xogħlijiet ta’ Ed minn dejjem kellhom leħen u perspettiva partikolari. Ħadd qatt ma kien daqshekk kapaċi, ħlief Cecil Satariano f’Katarin, biex jaqbad ħjiel tal-ispirtu Malti li jiġġerra fix-xagħri, fuq il-blat, fit-triqat dojoq mismutin mix-xemx.
