We are pleased to announce the official DVD and Blu-ray release of Upon This Rock.
Your purchase of this short documentary will help us to further our efforts towards bringing The Stylite to fruition and for that we thank you for your support.
With this release, however, we are also announcing the end of our GoFundMe campaign. The Stylite, which will be a feature length experimental documentary, will require major funding so we must reevaluate and revitalize our fundraising strategy.
That being said, we would like to thank those of you who have supported us with donations over the past few years. Without your help, Upon This Rock could never have been made.
The film is also available to stream as a rental for $1.99 or a download for $6.99.
Upon This Rock is an examination of monastery life around a one hundred thirty foot rock outcrop located in the Republic of Georgia upon which a monk hopes to live and become the first stylite there in six hundred years.
Upon This Rock - Extended Trailer
Upon this Rock is a short documentary shot during a research trip to the Republic of Georgia in September of 2011. Thanks to the cooperation of Father Maxim and the monks of the St. Simeon Monastery we enjoyed almost total access.
The film was conceived to act as both a prologue and tone setter for The Stylite. Our goal is to raise the profile of the project through periodic fundraiser screenings and a film festival run.
The Stylite - Trailer
A spec trailer for our new documentary about a monk who hopes to live atop a one hundred thirty foot rock outcrop in the central Imereti region of the Republic of Georgia. He would be the first in six hundred years.
This trailer was cut from footage captured during our research trip and a short documentary is coming soon. Please join the growing international community around this project and help us bring The Stylite to the screen.
