Мы уже сообщали о намерении канала National Geographic снять новый документальный фильм о старообрядцах Аляски. Это вызвало неодназначную реакцию местных жителей, в первую очередь потому, что отношение к старообрядцам на Аляске неоднозначное. Одна часть считает, что старообрядцам надо помочь сохранить их уклад жизни. Другая часть считает старообрядцев личностями, крайне подозрительными с точки зрения закона. Вторая точка зрения хорошо заметна в комментариях к статье Next up on Alaska reality TV: Russian Old Believers , напечатанной в Anchorage Daily News.
Next up on Alaska reality TV: Russian Old Believers
Published: January 23, 2013
National Geographic will be in Homer next week looking for «stars» for a new «docu-series» on Russian Old Believers, reports the Homer Tribune.
Each Russian Old Believer family will be paid to be in the docu-series, which the producers are planning to run for three seasons. This means a lot of episodes, for which each family earns $3,500 per show.
“We’re looking for families with big personalities and an interesting story to tell,” Blake said. “We don’t have a preconceived story line – this is documentary style. We are not creating anything. (The show) is simply to learn about and explore the people in Homer. It is open to anyone who wants to participate, who is interesting and interested in being a participant on camera.”
The show would follow similar National Geographic series on Amish and Mennonite communities. Alaska’s Old Believers began moving to the Homer area from Oregon in the 1960s.

These villages have rampant child abuse who’s crimes have been covered up and hidden by the church to keep the sinners from jail in attempt to protect their image with God.Hope this show saves some of them. The priests own children are druggies who not only use but sell. Many are well known for insurance fraud especially those operating boats who submit bogus injury claims. Many families steal state benefits claiming low income while shifting resources between accounts. There are many ripping off Pfd allotments claiming family members who have long lived outside Alaska still reside in their homes. The IRS should pay special attention too. $3,500 for an episode will not be nearly enough to cover attorney expenses for those about to be exposed. Before filming starts those in Nikolavesk and out East End better hide those vehicles insurance paid off as being totaled that are still in use or the customed rigs by the people collecting welfare. The paternity exposures alone that will broadcast the adultery, sins and degeneration of the community….NATGO better have cameras ready.
