This preview of Bela Tarr’s last ever work, filmed in collaboration with Fred Kelemen, depicts six days in the life of a father, daughter and their horse trapped in a rural farmhouse by a near-hurricane storm. Tarr’s initial idea draws on Nietzsche’s descent into madness after watching a horse being whipped in Turin.
Dir. Bela Tarr, 146mins + Q&A, 2011, Hungary
