The connection between Malta’s Prehistoric Temples and Atlantis is revealed in a documentary which will be premiering in Malta on Saturday.

The 45-minute documentary is the work of Francis Xavier Aloisio, a Maltese author and artist, and Ed Hamilton, director of Sprout Media.

Last year, both Mr Aloisio and Mr Hamilton embarked on a special journey and produced a unique documentary entitled Let the Stones Speak – The Maltese Temples and their connection to Atlantis.

The script was the work of Mr Aloisio, based on his book Islands of Dream, which delves into the notion that the Maltese prehistoric temples are actually older than previously known and questions current theories about them. The author’s extensive research suggests that they were actually built during the ancient Atlantean period.

We did miracles within the time constraints, the means and the personnel that were at our disposal

The first screening will take place on Saturday at 6pm at the Gillieru Hotel in St Paul’s Bay. The feature will then be available for viewing on social media as from the following day.

“The 45-minute documentary is the result of over 100 hours of footage and the making of this investigative feature was a challenge and an enterprising undertaking to say the least. We did miracles within the time constraints, the means and the personnel that were at our disposal, but we managed to raise enough money through the support of friends as well as sponsors, and were finally able to film this original documentary,” Mr Aloisio said.

This feature is a first in many ways. It is the first Maltese documentary on the temples based on the books of a local author. Moreover, it is directed and created by a Maltese media production company and is accompanied with music by a local musician and composer. The documentary was filmed entirely on Maltese soil.

The team is grateful to the many volunteers and to all those who supported and gave their donations and backing for this project to complete.

They wish to extend their gratitude to Mario Sammut, of Cygna, for the use of his music that brought this innovative documentary to life, and to Russell Muscat and the staff at Heritage Malta for the support and the necessary permits to film at various sites. Mr Aloisio said that the project was an endeavour of courage, audacity and determination.

The team said they’re looking forward to working on their next installment in the coming year.
