Cavalo Dinheiro - STUK / Cinema Zed

28 October, 2015 - 19:30
STUK / Cinema Zed, Leuven

In October 2015 STUK, Courtisane, Lieven Gevaert Centre for Photography & Visual Studies and KU Leuven start with a new series of screenings and talks.

As Pedro Costa's latest and impressive film Cavalo Dinheiro isn't distributed in cinemas in Belgium, Courtisane has the honour and pleasure to organise this screening in STUK / Cinema Zed along with a small tour of the film in Brussels, Kortrijk, Antwerp and Ghent.

The film will be introduced by Jan Masschelein.


Special thanks to Pedro Costa, Susana Santos Rodrigues and Rodrigo Dâmaso.

Cavalo Dinheiro (Horse Money)

Pedro Costa

Ventura wanders into a purgatory of shattered memories and broken dreams. A knife fight in March, 1975, which left him with a gash in his head that required 96 stitches, and may have left his adversary dead; his employer refusing to let him work because he was deemed too young; a horse named Money, torn to pieces by vultures... The memories become explosive in the course of an elevator ride to the nether regions and back. Horse Money is a polyphonic tale of fragility and resilience in the light of failure, and of all those who struggle to carve themselves out in barren space, to reinforce their existence as something other than phantoms.
