Pogoniskos / Thanassis Neofotistos
“A trip to Pogoniskos, a Greek village in the northern borders of Epirus. Stories about war, but also about fairies. Without a purpose and without an end. Our grandfather was the narrator, while our grandmother took care of us. Their return to their roots made our own journey unique.”
