Hi Father,

You might find this thread useful:

It might be hard finding a movie that's in English...

I'm interested in showing a movie as a missionary activity.

Can folk recommend possible suggestions, in English. Must be of great quality.
The classic 10 commandments film on DVD.

Fr. Lazarus is what Obiwan Kenobi wishes to be.
And in this statement, multitudes of oc.netters were born.

Really all the suggestions above are horrible, every film or "documentary" worse than the next.

Regarding Fr. Lazarus, it would seem the 3+ hour film focusing on him would be perfect. It is a very eloquent exposition of the Orthodox faith within the life a single and remarkable person.

It's on youtube. I am not sure if there are recordings of it that can be purchased.

It needs to be a really good quality English film. Ordinary British people won't watch an Arabic film I think.

I am thinking we might show the Jesus Prayer film..

I shall have to watch it all carefully myself.

Yeah, I guess if you were to take Orthodox praxis and asceticism, mix in some Star Wars, and shake the two together you would come out with OC.net.  :D
