"Anyone interested in creating more peace in the world, anyone interested in the Turkish and Greek people of Cyprus, anyone anywhere, will want to see Vassiliki Katrivanou and Bushra Azzouz 's feature documentary 'Women of Cyprus'. With stunning imagery, and penetrating narration, this film wisely touches every dimension of conflict and human experience. At the same time, the filmmakers keep hope alive, hope in our humanness and conflict resolution abilities."

'Women of Cyprus' touched me greatly. We see women struggling with the past, and struggling with their own powerful feelings of anger and loss. Yet they respond so warmly to each other, and invest so much and so intelligently in a united future. United Nations Security Council Resolution 1325 of 2000 stated that women can and should be involved in peacemaking. Surely the Security Council had Cyprus in mind! I feel that a film like this, through which women can become aware of their role in building a more inclusive and respectful Cyprus, will be a real contribution to peace.
