Univocal Publishing has announced an English translation of “Béla Tarr, The Time After” by Jacques Ranciere. It is translated by newcomer Erik Beranek.
Béla Tarr is a Hungarian film director who has directed a number of movies you’ve probably never heard of. Univocal offers the following synopsis:
From Almanac of Fall (1984) to The Turin Horse (2011), renowned Hungarian filmmaker Béla Tarr has followed the collapse of the communist promise. The time after is not the uniform and morose time of those who no longer believe in anything. It is the time when we are less interested in histories and their successes or failures than we are in the delicate fabric of time from which they are carved. It is the time of pure material events, against which belief will be measured for as long as life will sustain it.
The book is set to be released in July of this year.
