Convento is a poetic documentary, introducing an eccentric family of Dutch artists who live in a converted 400-year-old Portuguese Monastery, Sao Francisco. Christiaan Zwanikken is a kinetic artist who reanimates skeletal parts and deceased wildlife with servomotors and robotics. His parents, ex-ballet dancer Geraldine and her late husband Kees, a successful photographer, came to Portugal in the 70s and Christian and his brother were raised in this unique environment. Jarred Alterman’s masterful and dreamlike film pushes the boundaries of the documentary form. Screening with eerie, award winning short Battenberg.
