A favorite at the 2011 South by Southwest Film Festival, Convento is a mesmerizing film about art as a way of life. This subtle documentary Convento follows Dutch artist Christiaan Zwanikken, who, along with his brother and mother, live creatively in a 400-year old monastery in Portugal called Sao Francisco. Zwanikken resurrects deceased local wildlife by reanimating the skeletal remains with servomotors and robotic engineering. His mother and brother pursue their own paths, tending the flora and fauna.
