A 75’ documentary directed in 2015 by Constantinos Patsalides
In 1970, the people of the village of Karmi on the north coast of Cyprus participated in a memorable experience: the shooting of George P. Cosmatos’ risqué romance THE BELOVED, starring movie icon Raquel Welch. The first Hollywood production to be filmed in Cyprus, THE BELOVED signaled a new future for the country as film destination, a future that was terminated abruptly by the Turkish invasion of 1974 and the changes that followed. Four decades later, this documentary recounts the experiences of those who lived through these two key events in Cypriot history.
