The Fairs, is a 2-channel video documentary, presenting the story of two villages separated by the border line between Albania and Greece. But the villages Ayia Marina and Kossovitsa used to be one and only village before the creation of the border, that separated the villages for about 60 years since its installation. The video traces the story of this separation through the summer fairs that since 1990 unifies again the inhabitants in a revelry.
