Meteora - 1924

Country: Greece
(c) Tainiothiki tis Ellados/Greek Film Archive
Synopsis: Scenes from the life of monks at Meteora. Black and white motion pictures, undated. The first two recordings are general views of the monasteries on the rocks. Three recordings of monks picking olives. Two recordings of a monk filling a bucket with water from a stream. A monk is digging up the topsoil in a field. Sixteen recordings that clearly show the unusual, manually operated lift fitted with a net. Truly spectacular shots. Two recordings of the distribution of bread to monks in the presence of the stock keeper who takes notes.
