Meet Mario Cortes: entrepreneur, family man, Art Deco enthusiast, and part owner of the former Willow Court Mental Asylum, a skeletal relic of small town Tasmania. Restoring and refurbishing buildings of such proportion is not without it's highs and lows. Mario candidly discusses the property which has not only become one of his greatest challenges and passions - but also his home.

Special thanks to: Lara van Raay, John Martinkus and Richard Williams of 'Extreme Documentary' UTAS course 2013 - and of course Mario Cortes, who generously opened his home and shared his story.
