"Choosing One's Path" is the second film in a series entitled "Apostle of Love", about the outstanding preacher Metropolitan Anthony of Sourouzh, who was the head of a Diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church in Britain for almost half a century.
What was his spiritual path?
Why did he take monastic vows at age of 25?
This film looks at his early life, at the hardship of the life of the Russian emigration in France; at the encounter with God which changed his life.
It looks also at the life of his Parish in England, through his own words and the reminiscences of of the people who knew him.
In the words of Metropolitan Anthony:
"We should try to live in such a way that if the Gospels were lost they could be re-written by looking at us."
He himself tried to live in such a way.
(Next to photo:) Valentina Matveyeva, author and producer, filmed Metropolitan Anthony for almost fifteen years. Her material is at the heart of this film.
