Convento is a film immersion. At the convergence of the rivers Oeiras and Guadiana, rises the four hundred year old monastery Sao Francisco. Its light earthen walls, marked by the sun and time, house a labyrinth of terraces, courtyards, gardens and fountains, all offering secret places to contemplate. The monastery is surrounded by a surrealist storybook landscape, an amalgam of desert palms and cacti and a forest's darker, cooler life, within which animals of all kinds secretly contemplate. Originally built for an abbot and twelve monks, it is now a home, nature preserve, and artist's studio. Tickets: $10 / $8 Members Learn about the Cotuit Center Film Club http://www.artsonthecape.org/experience-art/film/
