Biography

Mario Azzopardi (born 19 November 1950) is a Canadian/Maltese television and film director and writer.Azzopardi is married to Therese and has three children; Lara, Kyra and Yari.

Early Life

Azzopardi was born in Siggiewi, Malta, and was educated at St Aloysius' College (Birkirkara, Malta), and the Royal University of Malta. In 1971, while still a student at the University, he directed Il-Gaġġa, based on Frans Sammut's novel Il-Gaġġa, presumed to be the first full-length feature filmed entirely in Maltese. Transferred to digital format and enhanced, the film was re-released in Malta in March 2007. Around the same time he assisted Cecil Satariano during the making of "Giuseppi."He left his native country for Canada in 1978, following a dispute with local censors and theatre authorities who, in 1977, had cancelled his play, Sulari Fuq Strada Stretta, on the grounds that it was too offensive; the play was eventually presented at the Manoel Theatre in January 2008.He has worked on such shows as The Outer Limits, Stargate SG-1 (including its two-hour pilot), and Stargate Atlantis. In 2008 he directed all eight episodes of the HBO Canada/TMN miniseries ZOS: Zone of Separation, which he co-created and produced.
