Is-Sellum is a dialogue between Malta and the rest of the World. Entirely constructed from plays, poems, songs, essays, dictionaries and the Bible. The collage form is made use of to illustrate the myriad influences making up Maltese colonial identity. Paradoxically finding itself as it loses itself in other nationalities.
