‘Search for Atlantis’ – A James Cameron TV Documentary shoots in Malta
Film director James Cameron, famous for directing Titanic and Avatar, is the executive producer on “ Search for Atlantis”, a documentary which was partly shot in Malta for National Geographic Channel and Discovery Channel Canada.
Cameron said that “Finding the historical and archaeological truth behind the Atlantis myth has always been a fascination of mine… Our exploration team will investigate several new theories about where the real Atlantis was, who these mysterious people were and what disaster wiped them from the Earth over three millennia ago.” Besides Malta, filming also took place in Sicily, Crete, Santorini and Sardinia. The documentary is set to premiere internationally next winter.
Minister Edward Zammit Lewis said this is a great opportunity for screen tourism. These productions are an excellent promotion opportunity for our history and heritage around the world.
