Film Previews


Some of the first churches in Eastern Europe were carved out of caves by Saint Lucas and Saint John during the 2nd century. An important part of the worship of the time became the veneration of icons-images of God, Mother Mary, the saints and stories from the Bible-the parishioners would pray to the icon and even kiss it in order to be connected more closely to God. This film transports us into the Eastern Orthodox Church of today, through the eyes and artwork of Romanian iconographer, Titiana Popa. Titiana Popa the artitst and Teddy Grouya the filmmaker to speak at the screening.
