Plot Sypnosis:

After discovering the murdered body of a young girl deep in a mountainous forest, a hardened homicide detective pushes himself to increasingly obsessive ends in his quest to catch the serial killer – known only as "the giant" -- responsible for the crime. A much admired but long unavailable masterpiece by influential Hungarian auteur and regular Béla Tarr collaborator György Fehér, Twilight (Szürkület) is at once an existential murder mystery and an expansive meditation on time and space. Stunningly lensed in rich blacks and cascading greys by DP Miklós Gurbán (Werckmeister Harmonies), Arbelos is proud to present Twilight for its first-ever U.S. release in a brand new 4K restoration by the National Film Institute - Hungarian Film Archive and FilmLab, supervised by Gurbán.

"I want to show to what extent the search for justice stands in ridiculous contrast to the eternity of nature. Meanwhile, it is precisely this search that I am so fascinated by." - György Fehér
