The British High Commission, PRIO Cyprus Centre and Cyprus — Women of Europe Thursday, January 17 event offers three short films from 6pm to 8pm before a discussion and drinks reception. Director Grace Sweeney’s Story of Yes opens the programme with a first-person account by the man who steered Northern Ireland’s “Yes” campaign in the 1998 Good Friday Agreement Referendum.
Ryan Ralph’s short film 54 Towns follows, with an account of the grassroots campaign told by activists and volunteers who sought community support.
The programme ends optimistically with Hope on the Border, a personal film from director Mairead Ni Threinir who grew up on the Irish border in the years after the agreement.
