Birds of a Feather - 41"

Fixer/Translator

2014

A documentary by Stephen Nugent & Stephanos Evridipou which looks at the contrasting personal memories formed on a post-conflict space after decades of physical separation. The well-oiled narratives of each community’s official histories have left little room for dialogue or mutual understanding. As stories unravel across the island’s coffee shops, homes, open landscapes and UN-controlled buffer zone, the film raises questions that resonate with every frozen conflict in the notions of truth, history and victimhood while examining the need for dialogue in a seemingly perpetual conflict.

Sociologist

A documentary by Danae Stylianou.
