On the south-eastern edge of Europe, two communities remain divided on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, playing host to one of the longest UN peacekeeping missions.
This documentary looks at the contrasting personal memories formed on a post-conflict space after decades of physical separation. The well-oiled narratives of each community’s official histories have left little room for dialogue or mutual understanding.
As stories unravel across the island’s coffee shops, homes, open landscapes and UN-controlled buffer zone, the film raises questions that resonate with every frozen conflict in the notions of truth, history and victimhood while examining the need for dialogue in a seemingly perpetual conflict.
The documentary is made by Stefanos Evripidou and Stephen Nugent on assignment of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
