news: Béla Tarr

Fred Kelemen:
Declaration of Solidarity for Béla Tarr

We, the undersigned, declare our solidarity with Béla Tarr, one of the most distinguished film directors of our time. He is the creator of the films Damnation, Satan's Tango and Werckmeister Harmonies which are part of the world cinema heritage.

Bela Tarr faces right now terrible difficulties during the process of realization of his new film The Man from London.

After the death of his French producer Humbert Balsan Béla Tarr tries under devastating and humiliating conditions and by now without any protection to shoot his new film in Corsica without a producer.

We ask him to be strong in this situation, not to give up and to finish his film. We ask everyone who has the possibilities to help Béla Tarr and his production, because we are convinced that the new film will be an important work of art and of world cinema.

Berlin, March 2005
