CONVENTO-a doc/art film by j.alterman

"Godard nailed it once and for all: ‘At the cinema, you raise your eyes to the screen; in front of the television, you lower them’. Out of the two hours you spend in a movie theater, you spend one in the dark. It’s the nocturnal portion that stays with us, that fixes our memory of a film"- Chris Marker View Larger
