Family Nest [Csaladi Tuzfeszek]

Bela Tarr (director, screenwriter)

Budapest: Balsz Bela Studio, 1977. Vintage post-production promotional script for the 1977 Hungarian film. Includes a prose narrative describing the film story, reviews, quotes, and critical essays. Text in Hungarian.

Easily the most rigidly philosophical promotional script ever issued, with the narrative portion being essentially one long run-on sentence wherein Tarr describes his intentions for his first film. It would be 30 years before the rest of the world caught on to his genius, and he would retire just 10 years after that.

Off-white titled card wrappers, saddle stapled. Title page present, followed by a cast and credits list, dated 1977. 56 leaves, with last page of text numbered 54. Mimeograph (front wrapper printed with offset duplication). Rectos only. Pages and wrapper about Near Fine with light toning at the edges of the wrappers.
