Nestled deep in the postcard-perfect French Alps, the Grande Chartreuse is considered one of the world s most ascetic monasteries. In 1984, German filmmaker Philip Gröning wrote to the Carthusian order for permission to make a documentary about them. They said they would get back to him. Sixteen years later, they were ready. Gröning, sans crew or artificial lighting, lived in the monks quarters for six months filming their daily prayers, tasks, rituals and rare outdoor excursions. This transcendent, closely observed film seeks to embody a monastery, rather than simply depict one it has no score, no voiceover and no archival footage. What remains is stunningly elemental: time, space and light. One of the most mesmerizing and poetic chronicles of spirituality ever created, it dissolves the border between screen and audience with a total immersion into the hush of monastic life.

The First Annual "Films For Food" drive to benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank takes places on November 9 and 10. Donors enjoy 24 continuous hours of the very best films the Erie area film community has to offer. See encore presentations of "Chasing Darkness" by Jason Hull, "The Beast In Me" by Jason McCann, "Two" by Jim Lechefsky plus new works by Monster Mark and classics from John Lyons. There will be a special advanced screening of Ryan Cavaline's "Dead Body Man Chronicles" plus "Virgin Pockets"!

And then, suddenly, I knew what I wanted to be for Halloween.

You have to start planning a very Warhol Christmas pretty early. Alas, my aluminium tree search has so far proven fruitless...
