Journey to Eastern Europe in this documentary set from filmmaker Jana Sevcikova. "Old Believers: Three Films by Jana Sevcikova" includes the titles "Old Believers" (2001), "Sevcokova" (1984) and "Jakub" (1992). Each documentary delves into the personal lives of small European communities, giving a voice to their traditions and cultures that are otherwise unseen throughout most of the world.

"Sevcokova" details the lives of a group of Czechs who settled in Romania in the 1800s and whose descendants live in largely the same area and by the same methods today. "Jakub" depicts the Ruthenians, a Romanian community whose lives have changed as their country came through a revolution.
