Béla Tarr said that The Turin Horse will be his last film, but luckily he has already made a number of great films for his back catalog. The Hungarian director began as many young directors do, making short films and documentaries. In the late 1970s, he made his feature-length debut with Family Nest. In 1982, he released a television movie adaptation of Macbeth. Since then, he has made many films, earning numerous awards and nominations, including a Palme d’Or nod for 2007’s The Man From London and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Jerusalem Film Festival.
