Where Are You, Adam?

Ukraine / 2019 / documentary / 80' / Somewhere in Europe. Boys Do Cry

This extraordinary contemplative documentary shows the lives of several friars living in isolation at holy Mount Athos in the peninsula of Athos. Their everyday life is subject to strict rules and the liturgical calendar. Women are forbidden to enter the monastery and the monks themselves are almost entirely preoccupied with devout prayer and tireless work for the community. But long beards of pious brothers conceal real people who, in spite of their spiritual devotion, also struggle with doubt, pain and loneliness.
