Through the Roadblocks – Limassol

This year, the 7th Lemesos International Documentary Film Festival, organised by Brave New Culture and the Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation was also in collaboration with NeMe and thematically curated as an independent parallel event to NeMe’s Through the Roadblocks project. We are very grateful to Yiangos Hadjiyiannis who accepted to allow his curation of international documentaries to be informed by the concept of NeMe’s project. It has been a pleasure sharing discussions with him regarding the content of the films and their contribution to the ongoing dialogue of experienced and perceived roadblocks.
