77 and 7 Days

MIAF is launching a series of videos to foster the collaboration between local artists. 77 and 7 DAYS is a monologue written and directed by Malcolm Galea featuring actor Mikhail Basmadjian


He lies in our midst – in a filthy bed in a small room. Forgotten or ignored by everyone. His only companions: the insidious thoughts born out of extreme loneliness and a lifetime of regret.

Day after day after day.

On this, his last one, he receives a visitor – and an opportunity. A chance to go back and do it all over again. A chance to take different decisions and a different path. A chance to rebuild bridges long since burned and to embrace loved ones long since lost. A chance to savour the happiness he once took for granted.

A chance to try… and fail… again
