The three-Oscar-winning film Moonlight will be shown in Nicosia as InterAction Project holds a movie night at the EYU offices as part of its efforts to organise different leisure time as well as educational activities for young people to help them find different creative ways to spend their free time, while learning something new.
“A lot of young people in Cyprus are at the moment unemployed and quite frustrated because they do not feel that they are productive in any way. Our goal is to promote the inclusion of these young people in society and help them find ways to use their energy in a creative way,” the team says.
With a welcoming and all-inclusive spirit, EYU invites people to their offices for their next movie night to meet others and spend the night with good company while indulging in Barry Jenkins’ film that thrilled critics.
Moonlight is a chronicle of the experiences of a black homosexual man from his childhood in a corrupt family, involved in violence and drugs in Florida, to adulthood. The film captures the protagonist at three different moments of his life and through them it shows what it means to be a black man in today’s America, how people grow, create relationships with others and fall in love under the most difficult conditions.
It won the Oscar for Best Picture and Mahershala Ali became the first Muslim to win an acting Oscar. Also, the film’s editor, Joi McMillon, became the first black woman to be nominated for an editing Oscar.
