Afs Presents: Horse Money says
Directed by Pedro Costa
Portugal, 2014, DCP, 103 min., Color
In Portuguese and Portuguese Creole with English Subtitles

-------------------------------------------------------

Director Pedro Costa is one of Portugal’s most globally celebrated contemporary artists, for mold-breaking films like COLOSSAL YOUTH, which used docu footage to create a fictional narrative about the plight of Cape Verdean immigrants in Portugal. His newest film is a departure from previous work, offering richer visual poetry and a more dream-like mise-en-scène to capture the often invisible stories of disenfranchised immigrants living on the brink in an otherwise modernized western country. The film follows a 60-year old Cape Verdean man named Ventura as he wanders the ruins of his old workplace and goes in and out of institutions. The film unfolds like a mystery as Ventura pieces together the stories of his past.
