The Music of Béla Tarr + Werckmeister Harmonies

Mihály Víg, Béla Tarr’s regular composer, will perform live prior to the screening of Béla Tarr’s Werckmeister Harmonies.

Het maximum aantal Cinevillereserveringen voor deze voorstelling is bereikt.

How wafer-thin the veneer of human civilization can be, is demonstrated in Tarr’s Werckmeister Harmonies, in which a circus arrives in a small Hungarian town. The inhabitants get carried away by a mysterious prince who drives the town into a collective frenzy of destruction.

The inhabitants stare in wonder at the circus’ main attractions, such as the skeleton of a whale and a mysterious ‘Prince’ who, like a true demagogue, tries to control the population. Some of them lose their grip on what’s happening, others try to cash in on the chaos that ensues.
