Here we have the possibility of questioning human nature, its inconsistencies, and its erratic way of acting upon the world.
1º – The Turin Horse (Béla Tarr, 2011)Guided entirely by the Nietzschean concept of eternal return, ‘The Turin Horse’ is a film about time and its relentless essence. We are inundated with the incessant repetition of two people’s lives. Their routines and habits are dismembered, making the viewer reflect on the very way they consummate their daily relationships with the social realm.
