Adding the Pantocrator iconography to the dome of Wellington’s Greek Orthodox Cathedral is a significant milestone in the history of our beautiful church. To share the story of how this remarkable work was created, and to celebrate the history of the Greek Orthodox faith in New Zealand, local videographer Angelo Giannoutsos produced two short films: 

Letting in the Light follows Sister Thekla, an iconographer who travelled to Wellington from the Congo in Africa to paint the Pantocrator on the dome of the Evangelismos church.

Keeping the Faith takes you on a nationwide tour, visiting the local Greek Orthodox Churches throughout New Zealand and meeting the people behind them.

A heartfelt thank you to Angelo Giannoutsos, Ana Matsis and their team for their continued support, generosity, hard work, enthusiasm and service to our Community. Angelo and Ana, the movies spoke directly to our souls. You have captured the value of the Greek Philotimo, the driving force of our Community, and you’ve made all of us proud. Your contribution to the preservation of our Cultural heritage is invaluable and we are very lucky to have such talented and charismatic people in our Community. Thanks to everyone’s support, over $2,000 for the Greek Community of Wellington.

Ένα μεγάλο ευχαριστώ από τα βάθη της καρδιά μας, στον Angelo Giannoutsos, την Ana Matsis και τους συνεργάτες τους, για τη συνεχή στήριξη, τη γενναιοδωρία, τη σκληρή δουλειά, τον ενθουσιασμό και την προσφορά τους στην Κοινότητά μας. Angelo και Ana, οι ταινίες σας μίλησαν κατευθείαν στις καρδιές μας. Έχετε απαθανατίσει την αξία του Φιλότιμου, την κινητήριο δύναμη της Κοινότητας μας, και μας κάνατε όλους υπερήφανους. Η συμβολή σας στη διατήρηση της πολιτιστικής μας κληρονομιάς είναι ανεκτίμητη και είμαστε πολύ τυχεροί να σας έχουμε ανάμεσα μας. Σε ευχαριστούμε!
