Cacoyannis Foundation Voices Solidarity

m_1382_cacoportrait1The Foundation Michael Cacoyannis (MCF) is about to launch an important initiative, A Minute’s Voice (Enos Leptou Foni) on April 5 and 6. Sixty Greeks from the field of culture, education and intellectuals in general will send a message to support Cypriot citizens after the recent developments on the island.
Cacoyannis was born on June 11, 1921 in Limassol, Cyprus, the elder son of Sir Panayiotis and Lady Cacoyannis. He studied law in London and was called to the Bar (Barrister-at-law) in 1943. He also studied acting at the Central School of Dramatic Art in London and directing at the Old Vic School. He has distinguished himself not only as an international filmmaker, but also as a stage and opera director.
In 2003, Michael Cacoyannis established the non-profit making foundation Michael Cacoyannis, whose aim is to support, preserve and promote the arts of the theater and the cinema. The foundation’s Cultural Center, located on Piraeus Street, in the district of Tavros, opened its doors to the public in October 2009.
Because of Cacoyannis’ Cypriot descent, the Foundation invited his friends and colleagues to participate in this special function. They will record their message to express their solidarity to Cypriots all over the world through one-minute videos to be uploaded on the Internet the next few days.
