Magna Żmien presents a series of events titled ‘The Landings of the Magnificent Memories Machine’ as part of the Valletta 2018 cultural programme. Each event will showcase curated content and artistic interpretations of local memories gathered from analogue sound and image home collections.

Since its inception, Magna Żmien has been carrying out research with the help of the local councils in four locations: Kalkara, Mellieħa, Siġġiewi and Victoria, Gozo, encouraging locals to contribute their memories to the project. People from other localities are encouraged to participate.

The first event will kick off on the 16th June at Misraħ iż-Żjara tal-Papa Ġwanni Pawlu II in Mellieħa from 8pm, in collaboration with Solar Cinema and Mellieha Local Council. The night will feature: a time-machine performance by ‘Armchair Voyager Wistin and the Banda ta’ Memorji Meraviljużi’, a live sound and video installation by Timothy Garrett and Tiny Island Studio, and a short film programme on the subject memories curated by Solar Cinema.

Magna Żmien is a movement to collect, convert and make available fading memories through the digitisation of sound and image home collections.
