'─Žuta Barra mill-Ilma: A fantasy short film inspired by Maltese folklore'

Bradley's dissertation is aimed at documenting a number of Maltese legends and mythical creatures, and updating them to a modern day setting. Using the short film medium, Bradley takes a closer look at the ways in which people think about culture, its relation to identity, and the need to belong. This dissertation takes inspiration from a mix of Greek based legends which have become part of Maltese folklore, and legends unique to the islands. The short film "Huta Barra mill-Ilma" (Fish out of Water) uses a blend of live action and computer-generated imagery to bring to life the creatures that live in the Maltese mythos.
