Once again on National Geographic and Alaska’s Old Believers

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

 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.

  1. Starover:

    Меня поразил комментарий, помещенный на The Alaska Dispatch. Люди верят, что старообрядцы до сих пор в любой момент готовы к самосожжениям:

    by scholastica | January 24, 2013 — 1:38pm

    Entire communities of Old Believers fled to Siberia and the Northern Forests of Russia in the late 17th century rather than follow the government supported reforms. The reform of the liturgy were things like making the sign of the cross in a certain way. When I visited Homer last fall, I was so thrilled to see Old Believers. It is hard to imagine that they will allow themselves to be filmed. These ancient communities are a true treasure. In Russia, they would gather in their wooden churches and burn the church down, committing martyrdom, rather than change any part of their Russian Orthodox religion.

    I have a couple things I want everybody to understand before
    this documentary is filmed and aired. I write this only because I AM an Old
    Believer and DO have at least a slight idea of what we stand for.

    This documentary will NEVER represent the TRUE OLD BELIEVER COMMUNITIES.
    Just the fact that NGC (National Geographic Channel) is «looking for
    individuals and families with big personalities», already goes against ALL
    that we stand for. The NGC is looking for people who want to be on TV. What the
    NGC will find is people who do not read or follow our holy books and are
    willing to «sell their soul» for $3,500 per episode!

    The other thing is the Homer Tribune also published a
    casting call around January, 2013 which brought on quite an interesting set of
    public comments. If you haven’t read the one by «Kimberly», you’re
    not missing out. «Kimberly’s» lack of understanding of a
    centuries-old belief is amazing, to say the least. It is completely
    disconnected from most reality (I say MOST REALITY because she pointed out how bad our teenagers are, as if the rest of America’s teens are all angels…), and is full of lies that one would expect coming
    only from someone who is obviously full of hate and misunderstanding. Her
    mother must be proud (sarcasm)…

    That is exactly why the NGC should find an ounce of respect
    for our communities and NOT approach ANY individuals to try and get them to
    participate in the series. If it is SO important to the producers of the show
    to know what we are like, they should ONLY approach our church leaders and ask
    them how they feel about this whole thing. Now, I’m not a gambling man, but I
    AM willing to bet that the NGC would be turned away, GUARANTEED, by all of our
    «old men» and sent back to where they came from!

    I haven’t even scratched the surface of this topic and
    already this comment is long enough to be a chapter in a book. There are so
    many things that come into play for the people who will be «DUMB»
    enough to join this unnecessary series, whose aim WILL be to shine a light on a
    group of people who actually went a long, long way to be left ALONE!

    We do not need this discussion. We do not need the feud that
    is surely to come to whoever joins the show. We do not WANT or NEED to be
    publicized.

    Directly to the NGC: Respect our belief and leave us alone.
    The only thing your documentary should say is «The Old Believers want to
    be left alone». This documentary should not be longer than 7 seconds long.

  3. Educated Old Believer:

    I should not be shocked by the rampant bigotry that you arrogant people are posting. As a member of this religion I am appalled at how poorly you view us. We are a Christian community full of people. People make mistakes, people sin, and people do bad things. However, your blanket statements are completely unfounded and racist. My family struggled to reach this safe haven called America and they are not bad people. These things you accuse all of us of doing are not things I have ever seen, heard of, or been witness to. We are not stupid. My family does not abuse children, or do the horrid things you suggest. Your accusations are unfounded. I can only pray for your lost souls and suggest you seek counseling. You do not know us and while I am disgusted enough to never want to meet you, I hope you learn something positive about my people because the way you speak about us is not the America I was raised to love. I am now happy that my parents found this racism to be such an appalling thing that we moved to Oregon when I was a child. I have spent my entire adult life as a proud American, but today I am seriously questioning that. I really hope your hatred changes. Racism is ignorance. Your ignorance is disgusting.

    • Rook:

      Educated Old Believer, try to explain your point of view to the initiators of that discussion and post your text there — http://www.adn.com/2013/01/23/2762944/next-up-on-alaska-reality-tv-russian.html#storylink=misearch

      And read some new comments from the Homer tribune web site:
