Attila 74: the rape of Cyprus



Above is Michalis Cacoyiannis’ documentary film Attila 74: the rape of Cyprus made in the immediate aftermath of the Greek junta/EOKA B coup against President Makarios and the barbaric Turkish invasion of Cyprus. Cacoyiannis’ film concentrates on the conspiracy to bring down the Republic of Cyprus and the effects of the invasion, the tragedy of the refugees and the missing persons. The film is in English and Greek, with subtitles as appropriate.

Attila, for those who don’t know, was the codename (appropriately) given to the operation to invade Cyprus by the Turkish armed forces.
