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