Öszi almanach (Almanac of fall)

Chosen by Aghyad Abou Koura
Béla Tarr, Hungary 1984, 119 Min., OV with English subs

A large, claustrophobic apartment is the setting for this intense chamber drama from Bela Tarr (SATANTANGO, WERCKMEISTER HARMONIES). In this dense setting, the inhabitants of the apartment reveal their darkest secrets, fears, obsessions and hostilities in a style that combines the anguish and existentialism of Bergman with the emotional intensity of Cassavetes. Jytte Jensen of The Museum of Modern Art called Tarr "one of the most innovative and accomplished auteurs in filmmaking today." In Hungarian with English Subtitles.

Aghyad Abou Koura, a former dentistry student from Syria, discovered his passion for images and film in Berlin. Aghyad now works as a cinematographer and projectionist since 2018. He also plays bass guitar in the indie rock band 'Pirol'.
