Belgrade International Film Festival

"Kato apo t'astra" by Christos Georgiou

Christos Georgiou is a young director from Cyprus who has received awards in many international film festivals for his short films.

This is a Greek story about the life of two young people after Cyprus has split in two. They both live poorly as loners, as children of the war, trying to leave behind all hard feelings and unpleasant memories of the civil war between the Greeks and the Turks on Cyprus. The emotional bondage of the film is created with background music that is an ethnic mixture of Muslim and Mediterranean Greek folk music.

This is a good story about love and the spirit that survives in spite of political conflict.
