Maltese Film at Siskel!
March 20 and 24, 2020
As many know, Hopleaf owes its name and identity to the Maltese beer Hopleaf Pale Ale, popular during Michael and Louise’s travels on Malta in the late 80s and 90s, when we were exploring Michael’s ancestral homelands. It’s a small country but as we’ve seen the last few years at Chicago’s E.U. Film Festival, Malta has produced some remarkably good movies, the best of which made good use of its distinctive look and feel.
