This is Béla Tarr

Béla Tarr (born in Pécs in 1955) is one of the masters of contemporary cinema, whose films have received international acclaim and aroused the interest of the great contemporary thinkers. He began at the end of the 1970s with an aesthetic that was closer to realism (in competition at the Locarno Festival with The Prefab People (Panelkapcsolat, 1982), and Almanac of Fall (Öszi almanach, 1984, both prize-winners), and then distanced himself from it in his mature masterpieces, Werckmeister Harmonies, 2000, and The Turin Horse (A torinói ló), 2011, which won the Silver Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival. For some years now he has retired from his activity as a director and is dedicated exclusively to teaching, following young filmmakers.
