An idyllic childhood crashes up against the realities of the adult world in Petros Charalambous’ dark coming-of-age debut feature set in 1980s Cyprus.

Twelve-year-old Socrates (Konstantinos Farmakas) spends his summer riding through the mountains of his picturesque village, tormenting the neighbours and making illegal fireworks with his cousin, Markos (George Demetriou).

His days of innocence come to an abrupt end when faced with unrelenting violence at the hands of his menacing uncle. Setting out to teach him a lesson, Socrates’ actions will put him at the heart of a murder investigation and change his life forever.

Based on the novel Land of the Golden Apple by British Cypriot author Eve Makis, Boy on the Bridge is a tale of unexpected turns – and of a childhood lost.

Winner of Best Film at the European Cinema Panorama Film Festival 2016 and Best Performance (Konstantinos Farmakas) at the Los Angeles Greek Film Festival 2017.

Την μέρα όμως που ο Σωκράτης ορκίζεται αποχή από την ζωή του “τρομοκράτη”, που τόσο αγαπούσε, όλα αλλάζουν. Ενδοοικογενειακά προβλήματα, γεννήματα βίας, κακοποίησης και αλητείας, βοούν για δράση
