Shooting of “Guilt” wraps

Written by Ninos Feneck Mikelides

Director Vassilis Mazomenos has completed filming on Guilt, which was entirely shot in Cyprus, and has now returned to Athens for editing.

The director plans to submit the film as a Cyprus entry to the Venice film festival.

Guilt is at the centre of the film which deals with the Turkish invasion of Cyprus and the island's 50-year old tragedy. The story is seen through the memories of an old man, a former gun dealer, at death's door. During the elderly man's operation we follow, in a kind of nightmare, his own, tumultuous life, revealing his guilty feelings about his country and his often shameful, attitude during the tragic events.

The film is a co-production between Cyprus and Greece.
