THE POLITICS OF POST-SOVIET CINEMA: COLLOQUIUM FEATURING JACQUES RANCIERE

The Department of Comparative Literature and the Cogut Center for the Humanities at Brown University present “Béla Tarr: The Politics of Post-Soviet Cinema,” a colloquium on the work of the Hungarian filmmaker, featuring Jacques Rancière, András Bálint Kovács, and Eva Cermanová.

Date and Time: Thursday April 10, 2:00pm-6:30 pm
Location: Brown University, Pembroke Hall room 305, 172 Meeting Street, Providence, RI 02912

Discussions of Béla Tarr’s films typically divide his work into the pre-1989 cinema of a militant director, grappling with the problems of socialist Hungary, and the post-1989 work of a mature artist, characterized by disenchantment and contemplation. Jacques Rancière’s book Béla Tarr, The Time After strongly and compellingly rejects this narrative. “Béla Tarr: The Politics of Post-Soviet Cinema” will feature Rancière returning to this them e, along with András Bálint Kovács, acclaimed scholar of European cinema and one of the foremost interpreters of Tarr’s work, and Eva Cermanová, a graduate researcher on Béla Tarr.
