Thanks, Frau. Perhaps with the school closing Tarr will find himself back behind the camera. He still seems full of creative energy. It was a sad day when he made his final film announcement for many, surely.

Tarr at the UNAM for a Q&A....I was hoping he said Criterion will be releasing his films. :(

An interesting interview with László Krasznahorkai, writer of the book Sátántangó (he wrote the screenplay as well)

Further to the premiere of the 4K restoration of Satantango, Luxbox has acquired Tarr's catalogue for international sales and says " “the Berlinale will also be a great start for the upcoming two years where we will have the pleasure of launching and rediscovering restored versions of all Bela Tarr’s films. It’s a new momentum for these essential films in our international cinematography.”

Emphasis mine

I'll be curious to see if they allow the boutiques to bid on each film separately or try to sell the catalogue rights as a whole.

In the UK, Tarr has only had one distributor to date (everything from Autumn Almanac onwards), so I imagine that will continue.

As of now here in the states, The Turin Horse with Cinema Guild is the only in print Tarr. Everything else was with Facets that are now OOP. Does Arbelos releasing Satantango mean that they will get the rest, who knows, can they afford it? If Criterion wants to bid for Werckmeister Harmonies then I can’t see anyone outbidding them. It’ll be fun to see how it shakes out.

I just saw The Turin Horse last week and was blown away. I'm VERY interested in seeing his other films, and I hope that they come to region one in short order.

Sátántangó is coming from Arbelos (from a 4k resto), and kimstim put out a good (and anamorphic!) R1 DVD of The Man From London (light-fare, for Tarr, but I find it to be greatly under-appreciated), although that one is probably oop by now.
I'm really surprised that Werkmeister Harmonies hasn't seen an HD release, as it is easily his most accessible film. I have seen multiple 35mm screenings (I believe from a print owned by Gus Van Sant), and it packs the house everytime.

Damnation (his first truly great film imo) is also in need of a release, but artificial eye's release (R2 PAL) is decent (and their release of Werkmeister is alright despite being 1.66 non-anomorphic)

A new Tarr work is debuting at the Wiener Festwochen in June
Vienna is the city with the highest quality of living in the world – this was confirmed yet again in 2018. But the city’s immaculate façade made of Habsburg splendour, Sacher torte and snow-white Lipizzaner horses is only half the story. Many inhabitants do not fit into this picture and are hidden from sight owing to poverty and social hierarchies. Béla Tarr’s Missing People makes them visible again. Tarr’s magnum opus, Sátántangó, is widely regarded as one of the most important works in film history. And according to his director colleague Gus Van Sant, the Hungarian comes closer to the actual rhythm of life than virtually any other filmmaker. This is also true for his new project, which is his first time directing after a long creative break. Using just a few shots, the film shows these invisible people in the kind of place to which they would normally have no access. This work will be presented exclusively during the Wiener Festwochen – at the filming location itself. While the visitors remain amongst theves, only traces of the film’s protagonists are left behind. A powerful plea for humanity.
