"The Everyday," a 2006 video documentary of Mount Saviour Monastery, earned two honors at the 50th-annual New York Emmy Awards held April 1 in New York City.
Awards were presented by the New York Emmy chapter, in the Outstanding Audio and Outstanding Camera in a Long Form Program categories, to Spooky Truth Productions Inc. of New York City, which oversaw the project.
"The Everyday" is a one-hour program filmed entirely on location at the monastery, located in Pine City, Chemung County. Shot over a five-year period, it focuses on the daily lives of the monks in residence and features candid interviews with them on such key elements of Benedictine spirituality as hospitality, work, prayer and love. The film also features selections from all seven of the monastery’s daily offices, or regular cycles of daily prayer.
