Béla Tarr makes a special appearance at Film at Lincoln Center to present four films from his acclaimed filmography, three of which are new restorations, from June 12–13 in the Walter Reade Theater.

The program follows co-presenter American Cinematheque’s Los Angeles in-person retrospective with the filmmaker: “Boundless Damnation: The Films of Béla Tarr.”

In addition to the previously announced 4K restoration of Tarr and Ágnes Hranitzky’s Werckmeister Harmonies, currently playing daily at FLC, thee three-day series includes Family Nest, a new 2K restoration of Tarr’s striking debut feature about a seven-member family sharing a small apartment during a national housing crisis that offers a pungent critique of patriarchy in all its forms; The Man From London, a prime example of Tarr’s utterly distinctive vision, baleful and radiant and as voluptuous as it is bleak, about a railway switchman who retrieves a suitcase filled with stolen money; and a new 2K restoration of The Outsider, Tarr’s gritty second feature, a finely wrought portrait of everyday despair that follows an aimless young musician drifting through a series of jobs—and women—in a Budapest that offers little possibility of la vie bohème.

Organized by Florence Almozini and Dan Sullivan. Co-presented with the American Cinematheque and Janus Films.

Special thanks to Chris Lemaire and Grant Moninger, American Cinematheque; Emily Woodburne, Janus Films; Amila Ramovic and Béla Tarr.
