About a monk who hopes to live atop a 130ft rock outcrop in the central Imereti region of the Republic of Georgia.  He would be the first in six hundred years.

I'm not sure if this film is still in production or if it's already been released. I would LOVE to watch it. I wanted to post it here to help spread the word about this orthodox documentary and hopefully collect more information about it from those who know more about it than I do.

Trailer here -  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPUs5G4qBFg

Looks really nice. My own spiritual condition becomes pretty obvious to me when I can barely sit through a 6 minute movie trailer about a stylite without fast forwarding...  Tongue

From what I understand they are having trouble getting the funds to release it. In the mean time they made or are making a short documentary on the side about there adventures, a documentary of a documentary if you will. It's shorter and they say it'll lead up to The Stylite. The short documentary is called Upon this Rock. Most of the information is on their main website and their facebook (link can be found on their website).

The link hecma925 posted is the trailer for this shorter documentary. They talk about it all on their website.
