Bela Tarr, The Turin Horse, 2011

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.
