Portuguese filmmaker Pedro Costa is our guest of the month.

LaCinetek highlights the cinephilia of this radical and moving artist, as his previously unreleased film Ventura, Cavalo Dinheiro (2014) hits theaters.

Its list of 50 films surveys territories that are both powerfully poetic and anchored in reality, favouring works with parallel economies and assertive styles: from low-budget Hollywood film noir to neo-realist gestures, via the modern essays of Godard, Truffaut or Rivette, to the contemplative investigations of Naruse or Wang Bing.
