Watch the Documentary "Athos, the World's Brightest Peak" Now for Free for a Limited Time

Because the 18th San Francisco Greek Film Festival is going on right now, they are offering the 60-minute 2020 documentary by Argyris Liapis titled Athos, the World's Brightest Peak for free to stream online. It is in Greek with English subtitles. As of today, you only have five days to begin to watch it, and from the moment you begin to watch it, you have ten days to finish it. Here is a description of the documentary:

Three monks from Mount Athos, the largest monastic center of Orthodox Christianity, share their thoughts about faith, Monasticism, their decision to become monks, their lives in Mount Athos and the monastic community. The camera travels through the peninsula of Agion Oros, reaches pristine places and the summit of Mount Athos, recording snapshots from monks' every day lives and also images that are unknown even to regular visitors of the Holy Mountain.
