The screening will be held in Ayia Varvara Square in Kaimakli, Nicosia, at 7.30pm on October 8.

The selected film depicts lives across the divided Northern Ireland and reflects on issues that are going beyond borders and the very concept of it.

TIDES, narrated from the point of view of the river separating Catholic and Protestant communities, through dreamlike sequences and archive material made by ordinary people in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s – invites us to discover its story through the voice of the river: how was this liquid wall seen, heard, and experienced by the lives of those it passed on its long run to the ocean? What could it tell us?

Through this public screening, the Urban Gorillas NGO, mainly focused on empowering public spaces through creative interventions involving wide and diverse public, wishes to challenge people’s’ perceptions and understanding of ‘borders’ and to reflect on Cyprus’ current situation,

The open-air screening will conclude a week of activities with the director, including workshops and on-going researches, and will be followed by a public panel discussion in presence of guests from the film realm.
