The Story of the Green Line


Cyprus, 1974. Things are already seriously wrong. A border crossing. Nobody crosses except the slightly bewildered conscripts who used to be Cypriot but are now compulsorily Greek or Turkish and who have been assigned to the wrong side of a border that, in their childhoods, did not exist. This gradual and civilised film observes the extraordinary everyday: conscripts who sing, people who love each other because they love each other, accidental soldiers, UN peacekeepers on bicycles with white flags, profound political stupidity, stubborn hope. Its advice: Be realistic, demand the impossible.

Followed by a Q&A with director Panikos Chrysanthou
