PHILOXENIA (Short film – Documentary)

Philoxenia is a short documentary highlighting the synergy between the Greek notion of philoxenia (friend of the stranger) and southern hospitality, as expressed through Birmingham, Alabama’s Greek-owned restaurants.  The film features six local favourite restaurants, two historians and, of course, a lot of mouth-watering dishes.

Appropriate for all ages

Run Time: 15 minutes

 

WHERE ARE YOU, ADAM?

(Feature film – Documentary)

Where Are You, Adam? Is set at the ancient Dochiariou Monastery on the western shore of Mount Athos, the Aegean peninsula dedicated solely to Eastern Christian monasticism.  Images of nature alternate with the monks’ almost ceaseless round of work and prayer, creating a rhythmic bond between man and the natural world that hints at a paradise we all dimly yearn for. 
     The jewel of this rich Byzantine setting, however, are the monks themselves, whose warmth and authenticity has been captured through a revelation of their daily lives, each with its joys, hopes, and frailties.
By inviting the filmmakers into their midst, the monks hope to encourage each viewer to awaken to his own resurrection.  A central figure in the film is the monastery elder, Abbot Gregory whose decades of leadership have given him a keen understanding of the souls under his charge and their desire to regain for themselves a state akin to the humanity of Adam before the Fall.

Appropriate for all ages

Run Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
