On the 27th of February the Rotary Club of Nicosia has organized an Island Wide Peace Event, which took place at the European’s University, Cultural Centre.
The event started with a display of herbal teas, herbal products and sweets as well as Turkish delights, which all the attendees have enjoyed enormously as a way of warming up the atmosphere before the film, and show how the two communities can work harmoniously under the Rotary umbrella.
The second part of the event was the presentation of the film Sharing an Island which was directed by a very young and talented lady, Danae Stylianou
The film has received many awards and has made an impact to the people, who have seen it.

Film Synopsis: Six young Cypriots who have never met each other before, three Greek Cypriots and three Turkish Cypriots, are invited to share a house for five days. Together they will travel across divided Cyprus in an attempt to explore their identities as Cypriots. They will argue from different perspectives of history, they will share stories of the past and together they will envision the future. Will they succeed in breaking down prejudices? Will they be liberated from the traumas of the past that have been passed on to them? Will they discover truths they had never before encountered? Is peace a long way ahead?
