Thursday, November 5
7 pm
Cost: Free
A strikingly shot, dream-like look at life in a run-down Lisbon mental institution, HORSE MONEY is one of the year's most gorgeous and enigmatic films.

Portugal | 103 min | DCP | Dir. Pedro Costa

Shot in a heightened style influenced by German Expressionism, Pedro Costa's newest feature HORSE MONEY is a dream-like trip through the later years of a man as he wanders through the halls of a mental institution. Played by an actor by the name of Ventura (a collaborator with Costa on his last three features as well), the character Ventura is a blur between truth and fiction, continuing Costa's long-running tradition of uncompromising yet abstract films looking at life in the run-down Lisbon neighborhood of Fontainhas.
