788 – video of our Athos-trip in 2007

Officially it is forbidden to shoot films on the Holy Mountain. The question is if – with all modern technical possibilities (which digital camera hasn’t have a film-mode ?) – amature films like this are harming the community of Athos ? Is there a fundamental difference between pictures and films ? And is the filming of nature, buildings and art a wrong thing to do ? In any case we have to respect the privacy of monks and ask for permission to shoot their image.
