In This Waiting 70' / Documentary / 2011


Some two thousand Greek and Turkish Cypriots went missing during the bi-communal conflicts of the 1960’s and the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974. Seven relatives of these missing recall their harrowing stories: from the last moments together with their loved ones until recent exhumations began to shed light on their possible fate. As they struggle to come to terms with what happened then and what the future may hold, their stories reveal how those events have shaped not only their lives but also their divided country.
