Every Day is Not a Feast Day

Alternative title
Den Einai Pasxa Katha Mera
Synopsis
A chronicle of daily life in a village in Epirus, northern Greece. Although the village appears to be virtually self-sufficient, the truth is that its economic, social and family life depend on the outer world to a great extent. The film shows the alternation between the monotony of daily life and diversions of feast days, which mean the return for brief interludes of family members who have left the village for the city or foreign countries. Without commentary.
