Events in Birgu (Malta)

8-12 April 2009, Birgu, Malta
Working visit for filming

Birgu (Malta)

The filming in Birgu, Malta was organized during the Easter celebrations. Beside the beautiful city bearing the signs of history and the signs of peaceful everyday life, we have filmed the ongoing activities held in Birgu, being:
- on 9th April, 2009 (Maudy Thursday) where part of the City of Birgu has been lit off from Street Lightning and lighten up with Candles. Around the core of Birgu there were ongoing  re-enactments of the Passion of the Christ.
- Friday 10th April, 2009 (Good Friday) - procession with statues and also re-enactors.

We were guest of His Excellency Fra. John Edward Critien, the  Knight Resident of Fort St. Angelo.  St. Angelo had been, together with the town of Birgu itself, the first home of one of the most ancient religious Orders of the Catholic Church - the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta, on the island of Malta in the 16th century.

During the filming we were pleased to have the amazing guiding of Dr. Flavia Zimmerman, who the put together a comprehensive and enticing overview of Birgu's salient facets, from the domestic to the divine. And of course she became narrator in our film.
