The Monastery of Mesa Potamos in Cyprus presents this profound video of the life of Tsarevich Alexis Romanov, heir to the Russian throne who was brutally murdered together with his family by the Bolsheviks. The story is narrated by five-time Emmy award-winning actor Jonathan Jackson, who also gives his personal testimony of love for the Romanov family at the end of the video.
The monks of Mesa Potamos have offered this beautiful video to our readers. No one who watches it can ever forget the bright countenance of this saint of our times. The video features an abundance of black and white archival photos and astounding new colorizations by Olga Shirnina. It also contains all the newsreel footage with Tsarevich Alexis, renewed to a high level of quality.
This video is produced as part of the project for the book The Romanov Royal Martyrs, an impressive 512-page book featuring nearly 200 black and white photographs, and a 56-page photo insert of more than 80 high-quality images, colorized by the acclaimed Russian artist Olga Shirnina (Klimbim) and appearing here in print for the first time.
