Chosen: Custody of the Eyes (2017)

New at the Browning



Tuesday, November 28, 2017 8:00PM
Browning Cinema


Directed by Abbie Reese
Not Rated, 110 min, DCP

Director Abbie Reese is scheduled to appear in person!

This documentary is set within the highly insular realm of the Corpus Christi Monastery and tells the story, through self-scrutinizing video recordings, of a former blogger and painter confronting what she believes is her calling: becoming a cloistered contemplative nun. Chosen forms an intimate portrait of “Heather” as she takes on a new name—“Sister Amata”—as she becomes a cloistered contemplative nun in a strict religious order. (Both names are aliases she selected to reflect the Poor Clare Colettine values of hiddenness and anonymity.) Co-presented by the Department of Philosophy.
