Horse Money, dir. Pedro Costa, Portugal 2015, 104 mins, Portuguese and Kabuverdianu with English subtitles
Award-winning director Pedro Costa’s latest film follows Ventura, the enigmatic lead of Costa's groundbreaking Colossal Youth (2006), as he traverses a seemingly endless night populated by the ghosts of the past. From the restless spirits that haunt this decaying urban landscape, Costa conjures a spellbinding cinematic experience.
Winner of the Best Director prize at Locarno, Horse Money is a hauntingly beautiful contemplation of Portugal's tumultuous past and uncertain future from a true poet of contemporary European cinema.
