I was wondering if anyone else has seen the documentary 'Old Believers.' I rented it not too long ago.

Quote
Jana Sevcikova's collection of three short films captures the lives of the immigrants and exiles who live on the outskirts of Eastern Europe. Shot over a period of five years, "Old Believers" documents a religious community seeped in ancient traditions. "Piemule" reveals the experiences of the descendents of Czech immigrants living in Romania, while "Jakub" chronicles the story of Jakub Popovich, a Ruthenian man transplanted to western Bohemia.

I did a search in the Reviews threads, and I hope I'm not repeating anybody else's post. Thanks.

Yea I rented that a while ago. Liked it a lot. Not your average type of documentary. It's mainly an artistic documentary that shows the life that these people lead. It doesn't really get into what the Old Believers actually believe, it just shows what kind of world these people live in.

Also, the documentary is in 3 parts. 1 part is about the Old Believers, 1 is about an EO community (if I remembered correctly), and 1 is about a Roman Catholic Community. They are all similar in that they are artistic documentaries, so if your looking for a video about theology this is not it. But I did really enjoy the documentaries and it was really interesting to see what the Old Believers services were like and just how they lived in general.

Let us the faithful now come together to praise our father, protector and teacher the pillar of the Orthodox faith and firm defender of piety even the wondrous hierarch Philaret and let us glorify our Saviour Who has granted us his incorrupt relics as a manifest sign of his sanctity.

Yes, I bought it when it first came out. I thought it was wonderful! My only wish would have been for more shots of liturgy.
