Memories

December 3, 2014

Documentary screening at Cypriot Community Centre, Earlham Grove, London N22 5HJ

 

The documentary, produced by Panicos Neocleous in 2011, narrates the true story of Yannis Maratheftis, a Greek-Cypriot and Fethi Akıncı, a Turkish-Cypriot who fought on opposite sides during the Turkish invasion in Cyprus. Memories follows the journey of Akıncı to locate the soldier (Maratheftis) he shot in 1974 and the friendship which consequently developed between them, promoting a message of peace and reconciliation.

CULTURAL SECTION CHC UK

 

The Cultural Section of the Cyprus High Commission promotes Cyprus History and Culture in the UK.

 

We host, organise and support initiatives and events, and create collaborations with cultural institutions, educational bodies, and universities. Our primary aim is to engage the Cypriot community and the wider public in a dynamic cultural dialogue. To this end, we support cultural production by emerging artists in various forms of art (music, theatre, fine arts, film) by providing platforms to show their work and by facilitating their collaborations with international institutions.
