** Newly restored in 4K for its 25th anniversary! **

This seminal work of slow cinema follows members of a defunct agricultural collective living in a seemingly post-apocalyptic landscape in the long shadow of Communism who, on the heels of a large financial windfall, set out to leave their village. As a few of the villagers secretly conspire to take off with all of the earnings for themselves, a mysterious messianic character, long thought dead, returns to the village, altering the course of everyones lives forever.

Shot in stunning black-and-white by Gabor Medvigy and filled with exquisitely composed and lyrical long takes, Satantango unfolds in twelve distinct movements, alternating forwards and backwards in time, echoing the structure of a tango dance. Renowned auteur Bela Tarrs vision, aided by longtime collaborator Agnes Hranitzky, is wholly unique, and his portrayal of a rural Hungary beset by nihilist revelry, treachery, and tragedy is both transfixing and uncompromising. Satantango has been justly lauded by critics and audiences as a masterpiece and inspired none other than Susan Sontag to proclaim that she would be glad to see it every year for the rest of [her] life.
