    Convento
    Jarred Alterman
    2011 • 54 min • Portugal, United States
    Filmmaker and artist Christiaan Zwanikken in Person
    Friday • November 11 • 8 PM • Linder Theater

    Prima ballerina Geraldine, photographer Kees, and their two boys, Christiaan and Louis, left Holland in 1980 to take up residence at the Convento São Francisco de Mértola. Strategically situated at the convergence of two rivers in southeastern Portugal, this vacant monastery was left decaying for centuries until the Zwanikken family arrived and transformed it with their eccentric and earthy endeavors. In the airy studio converted from the estate’s chapel, son Christiaan builds kinetic sculptures from discarded electronics and the skulls and bones of deceased wildlife. Combining the family’s home movies with his own observant photography, filmmaker Jarred Alterman casts these fantastical creatures as supporting characters in the film, as they literally move across the landscape, animating the ancient grounds.

    Making his debut exhibit in New York, Christiaan Zwanikken presents select kinetic sculptures in the Museum’s Grand Gallery located near the 77th Street entrance. They will be on display through the entire Festival. Free with Museum or Mead admission.
