Summary *Coarse Language*In 2005, the young Dutch composer Merliji Twaalfhoven brought together musicians and singers from both sides of the Turkish/Greek divide, for this unique performance.Nicosia: the World's last divided capital. Turkish and Greek Cypriots prepare to bridge no-man's-land with a performance like no other, from the rooftops of the old Venetian town. Through the performers we see what it means to grow up in an island divided by fear, hatred, barbed wire and minefields. Long Distance Call by young Dutch composer Merlijn Twaalfhoven brings together musicians from both sides in the U.N. buffer zone - the infamous Green Line - until political reality rudely interrupts the project's grand finale.Echoes Across the Divide is a timely Australian-made documentary that shows young people using culture as a means to address a situation where politics seems to have failed. It promises to be of interest to students of history, geography, war and conflict resolution, as well as to anyone studying music
