Welcome to the very first Golden Island International Film


Festival (GIIFF), created by UK based charity Balk Arts and
Creditwest Bank. This time last year we were sowing the
seeds for GIIFF, and it gives me great pleasure to now be
introducing the inaugural Festival programme. Over an eight
day period, GIIFF will be screening nearly 30 feature and
more than 35 short films, putting the spotlight on new
cinema from around the world and a selection of new and
old films made in Cyprus. Established directors such as
Dervi Zaim, whose new film Fish opens the Festival, feature
alongside emerging talent such as Stefan Georgiou (Dead Cat)
and Oggi Tomic (Finding Family).
Yet GIIFF is far more than just exposing new films to
Cyprus. Since its formal launch in May, the Festival has
created a great buzz on and off the island. Our patron,
Hollywood actor Tamer Hassan has said the sky is the limit
for the talent in Cyprus and so it should be. GIIFF not only
aims to help grow the profile and skills of Cypriot
filmmakers, but to also serve as a catalyst for new joint
ventures by bringing a host of internationally renowned
producers, directors, writers and actors to the island. We are
also very happy to complement GIIFF with social
responsibility projects. Reel Skills, have enabled us to run
workshops on how to organise film festivals. Film Beyond
Borders, means 25 participants from the UK can travel to
Cyprus to make a short film and also support the Festival
as volunteers. We strongly believe that cultural, social and
artistic interaction overcomes barriers.
That we have travelled so far in such a short space of time
is down to the dedication and positive energy of the GIIFF
team. And of course, GIIFF has been made possible through
the generous support of Creditwest Bank and its parent
company Altnba Holding. I extend to them and the
Festival team, and to all our sponsors and partners, my
heartfelt thanks. I also extend my warmest appreciation to
all the filmmakers for their interest in GIIFF. We had over
100 submissions! Sadly it was not possible to feature you all.
To those that made the cut, congratulations and thank you
for allowing us to share your wonderful films with Cyprus. I
should also add that sadly it was not possible to include Turkish and Greek subtitles in all films, but we have offset this
by including many films in the main languages of the island.
Happy viewing!

Dear Art and Film Lovers,

Deerli Sanatseverler,

We are happy and proud to bring together the people


of Cyprus with Golden Island International Film Festival
in its first edition this year.

Creditwest Bank olarak bu yl ilki gerekleecek olan


Altn Ada Uluslararas Film Festivalini Kbrs insan ile
buluturmaktan dolay mutlu ve gururluyuz.

The island of Cyprus has an important history as a


meeting place for numerous ethnic groups from
different periods. Despite the wealth of the island, as
a result of the lack of a strong arts and culture policy
and the fact that arts is placed at a lower scale in the
countrys agenda, very few arts projects are able to
sustain themselves. However arts, especially film
sector are considered vital in the developed world
and it exposes the socio economic level of the country.
As film production requires budget and human
resources, film makers surely need to get support
from international organisations and statutory and
private sectors.

Kbrs Adas tarihsel srecinin her dneminde farkl etnik


gruplarn urak yeri olarak nemli bir gemie
sahiptir. lkenin bu zenginliklerine ramen kltr ve
sanat konusunda kesin bir lke politikas olmamas
ve sanat konusunun lkenin gndeminde her zaman
alt sralada yer almas sebebiyle ok az sanat projesi
varln srdrebilmektedir. Oysa gelimi lkelerde
sanat ve zellikle film sektr lkenin gndeminde yer
almakta ve lkenin sosyo ekonomik geliiminin resmini
ekerek halkn gzlerinin nne sermektedir. Elbette
film retiminin belli bir bte ve insan kayna
gerektirmesi sebebiyle film reticilerinin uluslararas
kurum ve kurulular, devlet kurumlar ve zel sektr
tarafndan destek grmesi gerekir.

We, as the biggest private bank in North Cyprus, have


therefore decided to provide the biggest support for
Golden Island International Film Festival to take place.
We do not only help facilitate showcasing of films
from different countries of the world, we also strengthen
our bond with Cyprus by giving cash prizes of 8000
Euros in total within the Cyprus Cinema Strand.

Bizler de Kuzey Kbrstaki en byk zel sermayeli


banka olarak 20. ylmzda Altn Ada Uluslararas
Film Festivaline en nemli destei salarak bu yeni film
festivalini Kbrsa kazandrmaya karar verdik. ktmz
bu yolda dnyann farkl blgelerinde retilen filmleri
sanatseverlerle buluturmay salamakla kalmayp
Kbrs Filmleri blmnde toplamda 8000 Euro deerinde
dl vererek Kbrsa olan gnl bamz pekitirmi
oluyoruz.

We wish you film lovers happy viewings

Tm sanatseverlere iyi seyirler dileriz.

As a patron of Golden Island International Film


Festival I consider the festival to be an important
opportunity for the countrys cinema sector to achieve
good things, I have fully embraced the festival and I
am both excited and honoured to be a Cypriot. I want
to thank the Altnba family for their generosity and
for everything they have done for the festival. Today
the importance of Turkish cinema is starting to be
recognised and praised all over the world and I firmly
believe that with investment, new talent can be found
in Cyprus so I can stop feeling lonely as one of the few
Cypriots working in the industry and we can begin to
showcase this countrys talents together.

is looking for is now extinct in the nearby lake, leading her to search other lakes. Finally catching eight of the rare fish in

Every day trucks thunder through Barskoon village. They carry a deadly freight filled with cyanide, used for extracting
gold from the nearby Kumtor goldmine. In 1998 a truck full of cyanide crashed into the river that runs through the
village. Many villagers died and hundreds became ill. After seven years in which the Kyrgyz government does
nothing a handful of courageous women begin to fight for the rights of the victims. When a revolution topples the
government of President Bakiev in 2010, the women are at the forefront of the protests. After the first democratic
election, Erkingul, the leader of the village protesters, manages to secure a seat in parliament and continues to lead
the fight against the gold mine as a politician. Staying very close to the activists, this humorous film describes not
only the political commitment displayed by these women in their struggle for justice, but also how people manage to
survive in a Kyrgyz village.

Ali lives with his mother Nigar in Istanbuls Tarlaba district; home to many Kurdish immigrants. When the ongoing
gentrification of the old city forces them to move for a second time, they end up in the soulless concrete desert of the
citys furthest outskirts. Nigar is convinced that her old neighbours have all moved back to their village in Eastern
Turkey. Every morning she packs her belongings and sets out to return to her village. She roams the city, in search of her
village and in search of the song that keeps returning in her dreams. All Ali can do is be kind to her; he buys her gifts,
feeds her sweets, takes her on motorcycle rides and tries to help his mother find that song. Meanwhile Ali discovers
that his girlfriend is pregnant. Torn between the two women in his life, Ali has to choose his own path.

This beautifully told and stylish road movie, follows Roma radio reporter Orhan Galjus, born in Kosovo, along with
filmmaker Bob Entrop through Germany, Poland and Kosovo. As they try to discover why the Sinti and Roma people
kept silent about the genocide committed on their people during World War II after nearly half a million of them were
murderded. Through wonderful images we as the audience experience their unique encounters with Roma communities
across Europe. We witness interviews with German Sinti that survived the horrors of Auschwitz. We see unknown
commemorative sites in Poland. As the story evolves, the inner drama of the protagonist Orhan develops. His engaging
personality makes him a compelling narrator, who is able to continue to captivate the viewer. Step by step, Orhan
finds that this part of history of the Sinti and Roma has become somewhat a hidden treasure. He discovers fears that
future generations may become alienated from their roots.

Hitlers Children is a film about the descendants of the most powerful figures in the Nazi regime, men and women who
were left a legacy that permanently associates them with one of the greatest crimes in history. Their family names
alone evoke horror: Himmler, Frank, Goering, Hoess. What is it like for them to have grown up with a name that
immediately raises images of murder and genocide? For more then sixty years, they have lived in the shadows, trying
to rebuild their lives without the constant reminders of what their fathers and grandfathers once did. Only now are
they willing to bare the scars of their awful legacy. Only now are they ready to tell their story. How can they protect
their families, even as they pass their name down to future generations? In Hitlers Children we not only hear their
stories. We witness their rapprochement, many years later, despite all the hurdles. We are there as they glare
accusingly at each other, pour their hearts out, and conclude that the time has come for them to finally move on.

2013 / 75m / Languages: Hindi, English, Bhojpuri, Bengali, Urdu / Subtitle: English
Champ of the Camp is the first feature-length documentary filmed in the controversial labour camps of the United
Arab Emirates. The film follows a Bollywood style singing and trivia competition that searches across more than 70
camps throughout the country to find and crown the champ of all camps. Narrated (and sung) entirely in the voices
of the labourers. The film displays intimate scenes of their daily routines and emotional reflections on their life as
labourers in Dubai. Brought in by the millions to fuel the construction requirements of a booming Arab economy, these
workers live eight men to a room in industrial-sized living facilities far removed from the glistening skyline of fantastical
towers they build and from the luxurious lifestyle of the rest of the city. Champ of the Camp presents both a tribute
and parody to Bollywood by presenting its most famous songs against the backdrop of a life of manual labour.

2013 / 84m / Languages: English, French, Portuguese, Afrikaans, Spanish / Subtitle: English
Plot For Peace is a documentary thriller that tells an untold story behind the secret events leading up to the end of
apartheid and ultimately the release of Nelson Mandela. To some, such as South Africas former President Thabo
Mbeki, Jean-Yves Ollivier (alias Monsieur Jacques) was a mysterious businessman and sanctions buster or a
French spy. For others, such as Winnie Mandela and Mozambiques former President Joaquim Chissano, he was
a trusted friend and a man of bold vision. For the first time it is revealed how Monsieur Jacques positioned himself
to be the improbable key to Mandelas prison cell. Stepping out of the shadows, Monsieur Jacques navigates the
behind-the-scenes bargaining and intrigue that he engineered to bring about regional peace and the end of racial
discrimination in South Africa.

Set in a former East Prussian village occupied by the Soviets in 1946. 12-year-old Hans and his 9-year-old brother
Karl lose their mother to starvation after a harsh winter. Before she dies his mother asks Hans to take care of his
younger brother, Karl. Although Hans is less capable of coping with the upcoming challenges than his brother, his
mother leaves him with full responsibility. Their plan is to try and make their way through to Lithuania, where some
farmers are well inclined towards tending for German children. Being on the run to find a new home, the two brothers
are attacked and have to go their separate ways to escape. An odyssey begins when Hans, driven by the search
for his brother, joins a group of children. Together they fight against starvation, weather and diseases in a foreign

All over todays world we can witness acts of civil disobedience against ruling powers. The protesters often consist
of a wide range of people. At times these alliances are able to bridge together conflicts in order to unite for a common
cause. One such alliance formed out of the most unlikely parties during the Turkish protests against the ruling AK
party and Prime Minister Erdogan in June 2013. For years fans of the three main football clubs in Istanbul (Beikta,
Fenerbahe and Galatasaray) have been known for their unconditional support of their teams and their mutual rivalry
that often resulted in extremely violent clashes against each other or the police, with countless injuries and even
deaths. Then something remarkable happened, during the demonstrations, fans of the competing football teams
united for a common cause for the first time. People notorious for their mutual hate stood side by side. Soon a name
for their alliance was found: Istanbul United.

2013 / 56m / Languages: Bosnian, English / Subtitle: English


Born with water on the brain, abandoned at birth, Oggi Tomic did not get the best start in life. Twenty seven years on
however against the odds and through the kindness of strangers, he is alive and well and happily married in the UK.
After a childhood plagued by near starvation, shelling and continuous suffering it seems like everything is finally falling
into place until one day he receives a phone call. His long lost family have finally tracked him down. Theyre keen to
meet up and make up for lost time, all except for his mother, who still wont even mention his name or acknowledge
his existence. Filmed over two months, Finding Family is a powerful and profound first person narrative that captures
Oggis journey back to Bosnia. Oggi journeys from Cambridge to Sarajevo, from the orphanage where he was
abandoned 27 years ago, to the hospital where he made his miraculous recovery, and all the way to his familys front door.

September 12th, 1980, was a very dark day for the people of Turkey. The military coup of September 12th, extended its
effects to the present day. Seeds of darker days and cruelty were being thrown into society. The days full of separation
and sorrow were about to begin. Constituting nearly half of the society, the women were naturally affected. They were
the mothers, daughters, wives and relatives. They were ready to play their part in creating a better world, but they had
to pay for it. They learned to resist and to unite. They created the first political movement for women after September
12th. After 34 years every aspect of the September 12th regime was being questioned, argued and sentenced. In the
doc film The September Women, the camera is turned onto the women who have things to tell of those days. The film
is based on the interviews taken from 32 women who lived through this movement.

A sea captains future is transformed as he encounters mutiny, adventure and a beautiful fugitive in this romantic

suspicious from the outset and temporarily abandon ship leaving the captain completely alone on board. That night,
while waiting anxiously on deck, he spies a body floating in the sea. He discovers the body is that of a young Chinese
woman thankfully still alive. Against his better judgement, the young captain allows Li (Zhu Zhu) to take shelter in his
cabin. Dawn comes a few hours later and so does a search party, looking for a murderer.

As a teenager, Chris abruptly abandoned his
dream of becoming a fighter pilot in the US
Navy to join a colourful yet reclusive Sufi sect
led by the mysterious Turkish-Cypriot Sheikh
Nazim. He then harbours a new dream of
becoming an Islamic scholar. But the Sheikh
has other, maybe grander, plans for him. A
decade and half later, Chris, now known as
Alauddin, lives in Germany, happily married
to Fatima, the wife the Sheikh advised him to
marry when he was 17, and working as a cook
in the Sheikhs restaurant. But despite his
apparently problem-free lifestyle, Alauddin has
begun to question whether the destiny alluded
to by the Sheikh will ever materialize. He travels
to Cyprus, to the Shiekhs home and spiritual
headquarters, to find out.

A documentary that introduces 30 monuments


and the traces of the Ottoman Empire which
contributed its pain and suffering to Cyprus
in its recent past. History is formed when we
string together an accumulation of the slices
of life we witness over generations. Despite
the populous of the various civilisations it has
witnessed, with every departure, loss and
abandonment, Cyprus has accrued a history
of its own solitary fate. As time flies, it leaves
behind remnants of the truth that people do
not own lands. Alongside its monuments, this
documentary depicts the culture and the heritage of the Ottoman Empire that ruled Cyprus for three centuries.
