ROCKFORD - The first local screening of the film "Chosen (Custody of the Eyes)" will be held from 2-4:30 p.m. on March 18 at Nordlof Center's J.R. Sullivan Theater, 118 N. Main St., Rockford.

Set within the Corpus Christi Monastery in Rockford, the documentary film is 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, the Poor Clare Colettine nuns.

"Chosen" has been featured at film festivals around the world and was awarded Best Documentary Feature Film by the Sydney World Film Festival.

After the film there will be a Q&A with filmmaker Abbie Reese. Tickets are $5 each. More information and tickets are at www.chosenthefilm.com.
