The film is made by Juri Vorobyuevsky over a period between 1989 and 2005 and it contains scenes of the film “Unexpected Athos”, published in 2000.
The film, spoken in the Russian language, is difficult to understand, but there some extraordinary scenes in it, that I want to show you.
First of all there is a scene shot on a spot somewhere above the Lavra monastery, with the ancient pre-christian rock inscriptions, that we showed you before in post nr 1051 and 1199. It begins at 22.50 mininutes. Here are some images:
I have not found the excact location of this spot, but it is not far from Lavra and there some big cypresses nearby.
It would be great if a Russian speaking visitor could translate the words of the journalist about these carvings! Who can help us? And why does the maker shows a scene from a black and white film at 25 minutes and some pages of a book afterwards?
The next interesting scene can be found at 39.20 minutes. Here you can see and here the Russian “dreadlock” hermit Stefana from Karoulia, who also sings beautiful at 43.30!
