The studio of the documentaries of the Holy Dormition Kiev-Caves Lavra exists since 1999. The first movie of the studio named “Many Are Called But Few Are Chosen” devoted to the life path of His Beatitude Metropolitan Vladimir was created upon the blessing of Most Eminent Pavel, the Vicegerent of the Kiev-Caves Lavra. This movie also became the symbolic blessing for the establishment of the first professional studio of the Orthodox movies in Ukraine.
Under the Intercession of the Theotokos and the patronage of the Venerables of the Caves as well as the special protection of venerable Nestor the Chronicler, the team of the fellow thinkers gathered with the aim to help people find the way to the Church, understand the word of truth, wisdom, goodness and verity, which the Orthodoxy contains; to convey history, architecture, to tell us of the distinguished persons and of the Orthodox Church present days. During the period of its functioning, more than 30 feature length fiction and publicistic movies were created in the studio.
