Cyprus Cinema Series: ROSEMARIE

 

PRESS RELEASE

 

On Saturday 13th of April, at a crowded Hellenic Centre, Cypriot director Adonis Florides presented to the British audience his award-winning feature film Rosemarie. The event was the second instalment of the Cyprus Cinema Series programme, organised by the Cyprus High Commission – Cultural Section and sponsored by the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education and Culture of Cyprus.

 

The screening opened with a welcoming note by the Cyprus High Commissioner, Mr Euripides L Evriviades, who highlighted the importance of such events for the promotion of the emerging contemporary Cypriot cinema and filmmakers in the British capital, which after all is one of Europe’s leading hubs in terms of cinema production. The screening followed a Q&A with the international audience of academics, film critics, filmgoers as well as members of the Cypriot and Greek communities of London, who attended the event.

 

Monitored by Cultural Counsellor, Dr Marios Psaras, the Q&A gave Florides the opportunity to respond to questions around authorship, cinema production in Cyprus, the difference between theatre and cinema direction, as well as questions around the film’s themes, such as power relations and notions of masculinity within the context of the patriarchal family.
