Tickets are now available for Valletta 2018’s project Icon Island, a night of sounds and moving images from films that will be taking place at the Salesian Theatre in Sliema on the 17th February at 8pm.
The project features a live collage of visuals that draws inspiration from films dealing with the mystic and romantic journey to islands, representing alternative societies or different states of mind and pieced together by iconic scenes from films that have a connection to Malta. The thought-provoking visuals are aimed at engaging audiences to reflect on island customs and the way islands are commonly viewed – as places of paradise but also of fear, while the improvised electronic soundscapes, inspired by the visuals themselves enhance the overall experience.
Icon Island is a collaboration between Virgil Widrich, an Austrian filmmaker and director known for his experimental films and multimedia works, and leading Maltese electronic music producer Sonitus Eco.
