The 24th July 2021 will mark the Metropolitan Hilarion’s 55th birthday. Timed to this significant date is the premiere of the documentary “A Hierarch” made by the Kultura TV channel. 

Viewers can familiarize themselves with the history of the life and service of His Eminence Hilarion compiled from rare archive materials, stories of his closest associates and as well as his own remembrances. The Eucharistic cup frozen to the lips, dozens of kilometres walked from church to church, conflicts that could not be expected, inspiration making to stop in the middle of the way between two cities in order to write down music, a creative crisis and a new rise… These are only some details about the events to be learnt by viewers from the documentary. And through these details the main contents of the film will become apparent: it is the picture of the world that Metropolitan Hilarion would like to get across to his contemporaries. 

The premiere of the film “A Hierarch” will take place at 20:15 on July 24 on Kultura TV channel and at 21:30 on YouTube channel of the Department for External Church Relations of the Moscow Patriarchate https://youtu.be/acVw6N1uM6A 

The documentary will also be shown on Metropolitan Hilarion’s YouTube channel https://youtu.be/yz_2rnDlwsw and the Jesus internet-portal channel https://youtu.be/RqZwltS_FV8.
