Athos, The World’s Brightest Peak

Άθως, η πιο φωτεινή κορυφή του κόσμου

World Premiere

Three monks living in Mount Athos share their thoughts about faith and monasticism, their decision to become monks and their everyday reality, the monastic community, and the visitors of Athos. The camera travels through the peninsula and reaches pristine places, including the summit of Mount Athos; it recording quotidien snapshots, but also images that remain unknown even to the most regular visitors.
