‘30’ and ‘Beloved Days’ to be screened at ArtHouse Crouch End

Lobby for Cyprus is proud to announce that it is a media sponsor of two films that reflect the drama and innocence of the people of Cyprus.
30: The wound that never heals (short film). Cyprus, 1974. Maria is trying to find out anything she can about her son who is on the battlefield. A shocking twist of fate determines the course of the rest of her life.

This short film is a human story that people from every corner of the world, who went through war and its consequences, can identify with. It is a story about loss, refugees, enforced disappearances and the dramatic experience of those who lived through the tragic events of the Turkish invasion in Cyprus in 1974.

Director Constantinos Patsalides says, “The narrative approach of 30 is represented by a mother’s silence. A silence that emerges from the depths of her soul; a silence that bleeds while fate has its own determining role in life; a silence that will convert into waiting and hope, until the very end. The shots in 30 focus on the faces of the characters, reflecting their human dimension while penetrating their souls, carrying questions that rise from the circumstances of what they are going through.”
Beloved Days: When the past inspires the futures. In 1970 the people of the Cypriot village of Karmi, which is now under Turkish occupation, participated in an unprecedented experience: the shooting of the film Beloved, alongside a Hollywood cast and crew.

Starring movie icon Raquel Welch, Beloved was the first Hollywood movie to be filmed in Cyprus. Four decades on, the Cypriot documentary Beloved Days nostalgically revisits Beloved, focussing on those involved in its making and the traumatic changes to their lives that they have endured.

30 and Beloved Days will be screened on 22, 23, 24, 28 March 2019 at the award-winning cinema ArtHouse Crouch End in London.

Beloved Days will be preceded by 30.
