International Cinema Sunday (Hungary)

Sunday, January 5, 2014  
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Tarr directs an epilogue to the philosophical legend of Nietzsche’s demise. Turin, 1889: Friedrich Nietzsche steps out of a doorway and observes the whipping of a stubborn horse. Nietzsche puts an end to the brutal scene, throwing his arms around the horse's neck, sobbing. Afterwards, he lies motionless and silent for two days, as he loses consciousness - and his mind. But what happened to the horse? A film about existence and essence, this movie won the Jury Grand Prix at the Berlin Film Festival. Directed by Béla Tarr, 143 minutes, 2011.
