CYPRUS, 1974. INSPIRED BY TRUE EVENTS.
A PAUL LAMBIS FILM
DIVIDED BY WAR. UNITED BY HOPE.
UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE FIRST LADY OF CYPRUS
MRS. ANDRI ANASTASIADES
Based on the award-winning screenplay by Paul Lambis, '74' centres on the lives of four women, and the gross injustices perpetrated against them, following the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus. Paul Lambis’ war drama is a story of love, loss, life and death, seen through the eyes of these symbolic women, each one representing a town under Turkish occupation: Kyrenia, Girne (Turkish for ‘Kyrenia’), Morphou and Varosha. These powerful figures are united by one constant that anchors their stories and ties them all together: their hope for their island’s re-unification.
