Elder Paisios the Athonite, a film from Russia

This documentary about elder Paisios the Athonite is not only filmed in Greece, but relies on testimonials from Greeks who knew him in person. It is directed in a plain and simple, careful and inspired way. Narration in Greek, subtitles in English.

Viewing this movie one is struck once again, by how many people chose to live so called ‘lives’ of low pleasures, ephemeral creativity and general vulgarity when the world is full of the divine Presence.

It is obvious even by these testimonies gathered by the makers of the film, that the official proclamation of Elder Paisios as a saint is just a matter of time.
