We took the time to view this film at the Emassy Centre in Malta. It was a very simple explanation of the history of Malta and particularly the founding of Valletta. Definitely worth watching. Ran for about 35 minutes.

Great way of finding out about the history of Malta. Very entertaining and not too long. The traumatic history of Malta through all its conquests and sieges and wars relayed through a cinematic format. Well worth seeing.
