Storyline

Set within the Corpus Christi Monastery in Rockford, Illinois, Chosen: Custody of the Eyes forms an intimate portrait of Heather*, a former blogger and painter confronting what she believes is her calling: Becoming a cloistered contemplative nun in one of the strictest religious orders. Chosen is a coming-of-age story by first-time filmmaker Abbie Reese in collaboration with Heather, who became the film's primary cinematographer. The Novice Mistress deemed this project a "once in a lifetime" occurrence - permitting a video camera to capture monastic life from the inside. *She selected the alias "Heather" to reflect the Poor Clare Colettine pursuit of anonymity. Written by Abbie Reese

Fascinating film
30 May 2018 | by megancoleman-93077See all my reviews

Chosen: Custody of the Eyes is a fantastic documentary about the cloistered nuns in Rockford, IL. It follows the path of a young woman who decides to be a nun, and the process she goes through to be indoctrinated into the culture. Abbie Reese very thoughtfully edited the film so you would feel like you were with the young nun on her journey, and get to experience a bit of what it's like behind the "enclosure". At times frustrating and other times meditative, Chosen will give you a look into a world you wouldn't be able to experience otherwise. Highly recommended!
