Charlotte Film Society screens The Turin Horse

Posted By on Sat, Feb 23, 2013 at 8:00 AM

Inspired by an emotional incident involving Friedrich Nietzsche and a horse, The Turin Horse (A torinói ló) is a Hungarian film shot in black and white. Its plot tells the story of a rural farmer and his very routine life, involving his family and a horse. It's been described by director Béla Tarr as being a film about the "heaviness of human existence". At its premiere at the 2011 Berlin International Film Festival, it picked up the "Jury Grand Prix". Charlotte Film Society presents this screening during its Saturday Night Cine Club. A discussion about the film will follow the screening.

$5 for Film Society members, $8 for non-members. Feb. 23, 7:30 p.m.Theatre Charlotte, 501 Queens Road. For more information, visit
