here's two that I watched several years ago:

http://movies.netflix.com/Movie/The-History-of-Orthodox-Christianity/70040865?trkid=496751

http://movies.netflix.com/Movie/The-Other-Holy-Land/70028080?trkid=496751

I remember one had Met. Kallistos (Ware) in it, but I can't remember which one.  And I think "The History of Orthodox Christianity" may be available on YouTube as well.

I never watched them live-streaming.  We got the DVDs.  Sorry, I didn't see that you were only looking for streaming.

You are right! They call it "The Island" though.

The Monastery: Mr. Vig and the Nun

Finally had a chance to see this. Fairly melancholy and slowly-paced, though not boring IMO. I felt pretty bad for Mr. Vig.

Last night on Netflix I watched the first part of an old National Geographic show, Biography of a Corpse. It's about what some call "body farms," where anthropologists/doctors study various things about decomposing human bodies left in the open/outdoors. I found it quite fascinating, but it's not for the squeamish as the decomposition is shown in fairly graphic detail (maggots devouring a head, bugs crawling in and out of the dead person's mouth and nose, stripping skin/etc. off a body so that only the bones remain)

Real men eat chili while watching.  Smiley

I don't think it would bother me much.  Not that we are animals, but I am exposed to dead animal corpses all the time.  Often parts of dead animals with maggots all over.

Chickens love maggots btw.

I've even put maggot meat in buckets with little holes drilled in the bottom and hung them up high.  Flies land on the meat and lay eggs.  The maggots hatch, grow, and soon enough most will fall through the holes in the buckets.

The chickens/turkeys gobble them up.  Smiley

Yeah I guess seeing it on a human would be somewhat yuck - but I've seen it on cow heads with POUNDS of maggots etc.  Undecided

Old Believers

Only on disc, not streaming:


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.

Not Orthodox, but some Catholic references and very inspiring:

Shot over the course of seven years, this documentary from filmmakers Susan Koch and Jeff Werner relates the inspiring true story of Mario Rocha, an East L.A. teen who unlocked his talent for writing while serving out a murder sentence behind bars. As his family and a team of pro bono attorneys labor on the outside to clear his name for a crime he didn't commit, Mario keeps himself grounded on the inside by writing poems, short stories and plays.

It was on my streaming list for a long time, then I finally watched it and didn't regret it: Mario's Story

this reminds me of another documentery, "A certain kind of death"

which is about people who die without any next of kin and it shows what they do with the body

also they kept showing the dead bodies and such terrible ways they seemed to have died... quite ugly... and also them being incinerated

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ErooOhzE268
full documentary there

this also reminds me on youtube, of a certain german man named Gunther von Hagens, search for him on youtube

Gunther's ER- - Minutes From Death

they plastizise bodies/freeze them or some complex thing, cut them to pieces showing them... like for example the body laying flat, then cut it horizontally in half...

Not on Netflix about Orthodoxy, but on YouTube I've watched this one a couple times.
