Directed by Béla Tarr
“A rich, deeply moving story, a movie of incredible mystery and power that ranks among the director’s finest works.” —Indiewire
In celebration of the book Béla Tarr, The Time After by Jacques Rancière, available this summer in an English translation from Univocal Publishing, the Walker presents a screening of Tarr’s film The Turin Horse. Employing the epic shots, rich black-and-white cinematography, gracefully orchestrated camerawork, and moody yet subtle sound design for which he has become renowned, Tarr has created an unforgettable evocation of what he calls the “heaviness of human existence” as it winds down, day by day, in the life of a horse-cart driver and his daughter. The director, who was the subject of a 2007 Walker Regis Dialogue and Retrospective, has claimed The Turin Horse to be his final film. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see it on the big screen in the state-of-the-art Walker Cinema. 2011, video, 146 minutes.
