Summary, etc.:
The stunningly beautiful island of Patmos is the backdrop for this brief account of the Greek Orthodox Church, its history, and its living tradition. Interwoven with the spectacular Holy Week celebrations, the program records the sometimes contradictory attitudes of the Church and of the islanders, some of whom regret, while others welcome, the passing of the old way of life in the face of mass tourism and unstinting materialism.
