Quintessence is an immersive experience at the forefront of artistic experiments in digital age storytelling technique.
Through archived material, video projections, discussions, on-site interviews, educational visits and the creative work of Francis and Damian Ebejer, of father and son, this project seeks to weave visual symbols and images into a lasting memory of one Malta’s leading novelists, while showing the kind of influence he still imbues to those who come in contact with his work.
It is one of the stated aims to create debate and wider understanding regarding the state of dance, photography and literature in Malta today by providing the medium and the spaces needed to start a debate between dance schools, dancers, photographers and script writers. Can 44 photographic prints and literary excerpts achieve all this?
SOAR is a push, a movement, towards reaching that goal.
Great! So you’ve managed to draft a script which you are finally convinced of. But now, how do you get it read, and by the right people too?

This talk, led by Mary Kate O Flanagan and Jean Pierre Magro, will seek to answer such questions that haunt the dream of every serious scriptwriter.
