Ghosts of Cyprus

Since 1974 Cyprus has been divided into two parts – Greek and Turkish. The bloody conflict that preceded it is still fresh in the memory of Cypriots. The ethnic violence that erupted on the island in the sixties resulted in a Greek coup d’état in 1974. This was followed by the deployment of Turkish troops, military conflict, and the division of the island into two mutually resentful parts. Today, Greek and Turkish volunteers are working together to find the bodies of those who went missing 40 years ago. In doing so, they bring peace to the relatives and, hopefully, will initiate the reconciliation of their nations.
