Pedro Costa’s film follows Ventura, as he traverses a seemingly endless night steeped in sinister chiaroscuro and populated by the ghosts of his past. From the restless spirits that haunt this decaying urban landscape, Costa turns his exploration of memory into a spellbinding cinematic experience.
From Portugal’s greatest living filmmaker comes this dreamlike hallucination of a lost soul belonging to the country’s repressed, abused, misused and forgotten underclass. With his rivetingly poetic political cinema, Pedro Costa gives the unheard and unseen a voice and a true cinematic presence.
