A woman travels through Malta, researching the significance of the island's primary natural resource, the solid yet porous limestone that makes up most of its surface as well as serving as its main building material. In her journeys, she encounters imaginative territories where the narratives of refugees meet the dreams of young children, searching for a common emotional and physical space.

“Under the Moon” is the product of a Valletta 2018/Spazju Kreattiv residency in March 2017 in Gharb, Gozo (Malta) and additional support provided by a Roberto Cimetta Fund travel grant in July 2018.
