Would any kind readers know how to find an English sub-titled version of the following Russian film? It is about the monastery in Ukraine that is known for taking care of orphaned children:

That monastery is to also play host to an 'anti-œcumenical' council this summer, where the plan is to anathematise Patriarch Bartholomew, Patriarch Kiril, and other œcumenists.

I understand why they would do that to Kiril but what's wrong with the others?

I don't like promoting this website, but here's an article on the upcoming 'council'.

Christ is Risen!!

Sadly holding such an event could get this monastery closed, the monks dispersed, and the children who have a home there left homeless. I understand one can be upset with hierarchs, but is this necessary?

I take St. John Chrysostom's admonition to clergy to be relevant here. I'm told he reminded them that "the floor of Hell is paved with the skulls of priests." So, from where I sit, it is most important to pray for one's bishop(s), priests, and deacons--not to mention all of the rest of us. I understand that the Lord will judge all of us and that He will look carefully at those who are ordained. That's why I pray for those who have been called and ordered for our benefit. Their spiritual burden is much greater than ours.
