This week, we’ll be showing the Russian film The Island (“Ostrov”, Pavel Lungin, 2006; Russian with English subtitles), about a small Russian Orthodox monastery and the life of a Fool for Christ’s Sake who lives as a monk there. The film won a lot of awards in Russia when it came out and it is a pleasure to watch. Looking forward to seeing you all, this Thursday, October 26, at 7pm, as usual in the House of Ss. Gregory and Macrina, 1 Canterbury Road, Oxford, OX2 6LU. The film will be followed by a bring-and-share meal, so please bring whatever food or snacks you can!
