Heartland of Legends is a film created for the 'Visit Cyprus' campaign, of the Cyprus Deputy Ministry of Tourism.
The film was created with a very unique and particular approach, inspired by the Cyprus myths and legends and its traditional theatre of shadows.
Cyprus is the island of legends and stories. Almost every single place, village, mountain, river, rock, tree, monument, has its magical stories. Stories about their name, their importance, how they came to be, and how Cypriots loved, worshiped, and cherished them. Stories about mythical creatures and infamous bandits, legends about brave soldiers, strong men, and beautiful queens.
Myths about places of great beauty, chosen by the gods for their escapades. Places where great love stories unfold, full of passion and intrigue. Stories about ancient wisdom on how to make mystic portions, and to use nature to cure ailments of the body and the heart alike.
The island’s soul is its heartland. Full of hospitable people, enduring traditions, and fresh produce. Perfectly hidden places, where you can unwind, enjoy slow life, rediscover food and breathe real oxygen. Savor the sweet, fragrant air, feel your body relax and allow your soul to start searching for these magical stories.
