Los Angeles beat producer Flying Lotus has been building up to the release of his new album, "Until the Quiet Comes," for the last few months. The follow-up to his acclaimed "Cosmogramma" arrives Oct. 2, and on Thursday morning, he debuted a short film as a teaser, featuring as its soundtrack snippets of three new songs. Directed by Kahlil Joseph, the exquisitely rendered, visually striking -- and at times horrifyingly real -- short takes place in an empty Nickerson Gardens swimming pool during a daytime tragedy, and during another shooting on a red-skied summer night, and features images that stab at the heart of Los Angeles.

The Grande 4-Plex's "Documentary Days," composed of three films each screening one week, begins today with Laurel Chiten's beautiful and moving "The Jew in the Lotus." The film takes its title from a book written by Rodger Kamenetz on the spiritual rebirth he experienced when he accompanied a group of rabbis for a historical meeting with the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, India. When Dr. Marc Lieberman, a Buddhist convert, organized the meeting, he invited Kamenetz to come along.

I'VE been publisher of the Fairfield (Iowa) Daily Ledger for more than 15 years. I've seen dozens of reporters from metro dailies and national television try to tell the story about "small town Iowa meets Maharishi TM." Carina Chocano nailed it ["A Lotus Amid the Iowa Corn," Sept. 10]. Unraveling the Fairfield and Maharishi Vedic City story is hard enough for people who live here, let alone a reporter visiting for a few days. You got it. Congratulations.
