by John Daridis , Greece, 2020, 20’

 Liberis Tsailas was born in Megalopolis, in Arcadia, Peloponnese. In 1919, at a young age he came to Komotini as an agent of Greek newspapers. Today he returns to the city as a ghost. He draws from his memories emotions and images of Komotini, telling us about its Liberation as he lived it. He is surrounded by 4 women. Each one originates from a different culture or/and religious community of the then Gumuldjina. They offer treats for the joyful event, telling us the facts as they learned of them.
