Notes:  "Present Time Journal of a Country Monastery is a poetical historical portrait of a monastery, representing 15 years and told over five seasons. Woven into these seasons is an intimate, observed chronicle of the everyday lives of the monks. Established in 1947 the monastery was once a thriving community of 84 men. The monks built and worked a large industry of beekeeping and cattle farming, supplying eggs, bread, grain and honey worldwide. Now, with the average age of a monk close to 90, only a few monks remain. The monastery will close."
