Film club – The Turin Horse (Béla Tarr, 2011)

21st June, Sunday, 8 p.m., Slovenska Kinoteka

In Turin on 3rd January, 1889, Friedrich Nietzsche steps out of the doorway. Not far from him, the driver of a cab is having trouble with a stubborn horse. Despite all his urging, the horse refuses to move, whereupon the driver loses his patience and takes his whip to it. Nietzsche comes up to the throng and puts an end to the brutal scene, throwing his arms around the horse’s neck, sobbing. His landlord takes him home, he lies motionless and silent for two days on a divan until he mutters the obligatory last words, and lives for another ten years, silent and demented, cared for by his mother and sisters. What happens with the horse? You will find out in “The Turin Horse” film. Yann-Eryl Mer, Béla Tarr's assistant director will be present on the screening and will tell an introduction.

The film will be screened in Hungarian with Slovene subtitles.
