The Craft of Film: The Turin Horse (15) + ScreenTalk with Cinematographer Fred Kelemen


25 February 2017
Cinema 2
Béla Tarr’s film follows six days in the life of the poor farmer Ohlsdorfer and his daughter who depend on an increasingly uncooperative horse for their sustenance.

Their austere farmhouse besieged by a relentless storm, they wordlessly pursue their daily routine of chores and scant meals. Captured in stark black and white by Fred Kelemen’s exquisitely choreographed camera work, the dogged endurance of their plight achieves a slow burning emotional intensity and austere beauty that affects us at the very core of our existence.

We are pleased to have cinematographer Fred Kelemen join us for a talk after the screening, hosted by Noski Deville.
