Film careerEdit

Hranitzky began working in the 1970s as a film editor on Hungarian films. She began collaborating with director Béla Tarr in 1981, editing his film The Outsider. She has edited all of Tarr's films since then.

In 2000, with the film Werckmeister Harmonies Hranitzky began to be credited as a co-director on Tarr's films. The credit developed as Tarr is known for his long takes, the length of which forced Hranitzky to be on set during production in order to assist Tarr with knowing how things would develop in the editing room and which takes would match others.[1]

She co-directed The Man from London in 2007, again with Tarr as lead director. The film premiered In Competition at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival.[2]

In 2011 she again co-directed The Turin Horse, which premiered in 2011 at the 61st Berlin International Film Festival, where it received the Jury Grand Prix.
