Vitalina Varela

In Pedro Costa’s Horse Money, Vitalina Varela made a memorable appearance, effectively playing herself. In this follow-up Varela steps into the foreground as a woman who, after years waiting for a plane ticket, arrives in Portugal three days after her husband’s funeral. A mesmerising contemplation of race, grief and exile, the film is magnificently photographed by Leonardo Simões.

There will be a special preview screening of this film on Wed 4 Mar, followed by a Q&A with director Pedro Costa. There will be no ads or trailers shown with this screening.
