Prominent figures come together in documentary marking three years since journalist’s assassination

Former European Court of Human Rights Judge Vincent De Gaetano joins several prominent figures in the fight for justice for assassinated journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia interviewed in When They Come Undone, a new documentary premiering on third anniversary of her death.

The documentary, created by NGO Repubblika, Occupy Justice and, consists of interviews with an array of individuals who have been active in the fight for justice since her death, including family members, activists, politicians and journalists.

It will be launched online at 8pm on Friday as part of a varied programme spanning throughout the week in commemoration of the journalist.

The programme kicked off on 12 October with the opening of an exhibition of charcoal drawings The Goldfinch by Maltese artist Joseph Farrrugia at Splendid, Valletta. The works present a powerful commentary against the indifference, institutional collapse and moral corrosion tied to the assassination.

On Tuesday, a webinar titled Journalism Under Attack with Sky News journalist Alex Crawford will kick off the discussions for the week.

On 15 October an art installation entitled Justice for Daphne is Justice for Your Right To Know at the Great Siege memorial will be launched. It will include discussions with the artists involved, which will be streamed online.

On 16 October, the day marking the three years since the assassination, the programme begins at 11am with a discussion with journalists organised in collaboration with the IGM taking place at the protest memorial opposite the Law Courts.

The discussion will be centred around the topic ‘The Journalism of Tomorrow in the Malta of Today’. Journalists are invited to attend and participate in the discussion.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic and the discouragement of public gatherings, the events for the day will also be streamed online to minimise the number of attendees.

The first streamed event will be a silent gathering in Bidnija at 3pm, the time when Caruana Galizia was killed. This will be followed by a mass in suffrage of Caruana Galizia presided by Archbishop Charles Scicluna in Bidnija.

The final event on the programme is the launch of When They Come Undone, which will premiere at 8pm.

Caruana Galizia was killed by a car bomb outside her home in Bidnija on 16 October 2017. Since then, five men have been charged with involvement in the assassination.
