About Sátántangó

Not rated
Year Released:

Shot in stunning black-and-white and filled with exquisitely composed and lyrical takes, the film follows a small agricultural collective living in a post-apocalyptic landscape after the fall of communism, who set out to leave their village after a large financial windfall. As a few of the villagers conspire to steal the earnings, a mysterious character returns to the village, altering the course of everyone’s lives forever. Sátántangó has been lauded by critics as a masterpiece, and Susan Sontag proclaimed that she would be “glad to see it every year for the rest of her life.” A new restoration of the film is currently underway and will be completed by Arbelos in collaboration with The Hungarian Filmlab by October 2019. In Hungarian with English subtitles.
