A mid-career masterwork by legendary Hungarian art house auteur Be?la Tarr and the first of his internationally acclaimed trilogy of films written in collaboration with author La?szlo? Krasznahorkai (including the legendary Sa?ta?ntango?) Damnation (Ka?rhozat) chronicles the doomed affair between Bar Titanik regular Karrer (Sa?ta?ntango?’s Miklo?s B. Sze?kely) and the cabaret singer (Vali Kerekes) he pines for while scheming to displace her brutish husband (Gyo?rgy Cserhalmi). A poignant Communism allegory that solidified Tarr’s unique aesthetic, Damnation is photographed in an exquisitely black & white palette underscored by the mesmerizing long takes that would come to be his trademark. Damnation has been restored in 4K from the original 35mm camera negative by the Hungarian National Film Institute – Film Archive under the supervision of Be?la Tarr.
