Along the G-Line

Germany 2010, 2’ | Director, DoP, Editor Marianna Christofides | Sound Cedric Hopf | Cast Orestis Papayiannis | Production, Distribution Kunsthochschule für Medien Köln


A seven year old boy is turning cartwheels along the UN buffer zone which divides the city of Nicosia. The movement of the body through the successive images marks imaginary points on a line parallel to the border – both being illusionary mental structures, yet leaving tangible traces in space and time. Always starting anew, the boy measures the space and transforms a place solidified in history into active present-day space.


Marianna Christofides was born 1980 in Nicosia, Cyprus. She completed a postgraduate programme at the Cologne Academy of Media Arts from 2007 to 2010. Has a degree in media art.
