 About the Book 

No technique of cinema is as royal and as risky as the Long Take—audacious in its promise of unified time and space, terrifying in what that might imply. Inspired by the films of Hungarian auteur Bela Tarr, famous for his long take, and the novelsMoreNo technique of cinema is as royal and as risky as the Long Take—audacious in its promise of unified time and space, terrifying in what that might imply. Inspired by the films of Hungarian auteur Bela Tarr, famous for his long take, and the novels and screenplays of Tarr’s great collaborator László Krasznahorkai, Janice Lee’s Damnation is both an ekphrasis and confession, an obsessive response, a poetic meditation and mirror on time- time that ruthlessly pulls forward with our endurance- time unleashed from chronology and prediction- time which resides in a dank, drunk, sordid hiss of relentless static.As declared in Tarr’s film Damnation, “All stories are about disintegration.”
