Horse Money


Horse Money “takes place” in the soul-space of Ventura, who has been at the center of Pedro Costa’s last few shorts and his 2006 feature Colossal Youth. It is now, a numbing and timeless present of hospital stays, bureaucratic questioning, and wandering through remembered spaces… and it is then, the mid ’70s and the time of the Carnation Revolution, when Ventura got into a knife fight with his friend Joaquim.

Chicago: Jan. 8 - 13 at Siskel Film Center.
