Louroujina/Akincilar (Lordo's village)

Postby umit07 » Sat May 13, 2017 10:16 am



As per Youtube description;

"Akincilar is a small village on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus.

It has lived through Cyprus' turbulent, modern history, including the island's civil war in the 1960s and its division in the 1970s when Turkish Cypriots moved north, and Greek Cypriots moved south.
Akincilar, like many rural communities the world over, has experienced the outflow of young people seeking opportunities in big cities.

But Akincilar's decline from a bustling town of 5,000 to a village of 350, almost frozen in time, has to do with its geographical location, the division of Cyprus, and the island's complex history.

This film explores Akincilar's past and present through the eyes of three residents."
