HORSE MONEY

Med Ventura i hovedrollen og en geografi af opløst tid dykker Costa endnu dybere ned i det fantastiske.

With Ventura in the lead role and a geography of dissolved time, Costa dips further into the fantastic.

Hallucination og historisk virkelighed krydser spor i Pedro Costas dystre og foruroligende feberdrøm af en film. I fabulerende form følger han op på historien om den aldrende immigrant Ventura. I ‘Colossal Youth’ blev Ventura forvist fra sit hjem i Lissabons slum og genhuset. ‘Horse Money’ genfinder ham, nu hospitaliseret og i en tilstand mellem melankoli og galskab, virkeliggjort for vore øjne som et sortsværtet helvede.

Hallucination and historical reality cross paths in Pedro Costa’s sombre and unnerving feverish dream. In a fabulating manner, he follows up on the story of the aging immigrant, Ventura. In Colossal Youth, Ventura was evicted from his home in Lisbon’s slum and rehoused. Horse Money finds him again, now hospitalised and in a condition between melancholy and madness, made real before our eyes as a black-tainted hell.
