The 4K restoration of SÁTÁNTANGÓ—Béla Tarr’s durational magnum opus, based on the novel by László Krasznahorkai—will screen twice this month, presented by the American Cinematheque.
Early on, I noticed that when the camera is rolling and the whole scene is moving, everyone starts to breathe in the same rhythm: the actors, the crew members, the cinematographer, everyone. You are all “in.” And that is very important. It creates a special tension. It gives a special vibration. Somehow you can feel it on the screen too. You become a part of it. — Béla Tarr
