Cyprus: In the Footsteps of a Dying Dialect

This project is a participatory audio and visual documentary about the dying dialect of Kormakitis village in Cyprus. We hope to show the need for a solution to the Cyprus Problem so that people can return to their village, so get to know and speak there dialect. We will show the historical routs of this dialect, the need for teaching it to the youth and all the interested people so it will not die after a few generations. We will find older people to speak about their language, show the different perspectives of the youth, and highlight what has been done until now to keep this dialect alive.
