Description:

21 December 1963 fighting erupted between the communities in Nicosia, Cyprus. In the days that followed it spread across the rest of the island. At the same time, the power-sharing government (Turkey and Greece) collapsed. As a result, 18,667 Turkish Cypriots from 103 different villages abandoned their homes. Shadows and Faces tells the story of a young girl who is separated from his shadow puppetry performer father during this ethnic conflict between Cypriot Greeks and Cypriot Turks in 1963.
