Once Upon a Time in Anatolia


Dir. Nuri Bilge Ceylan. 2011, 157 mins. 35mm. With Muhammet Uzuner, Yılmaz Erdoğan, Taner Birsel. A group of men search for truth (and a dead body) in the “empty” void of the Anatolian steppe. Gökhan Tiryaki’s high-definition, remarkably low-light digital photography, which was transferred to 35mm, has all the sumptuous breadth of CinemaScope, projecting a desolate atmosphere for this meditation on human uncertainty.

Tickets for Friday evening screenings: $12 ($9 for senior citizens and students / free for Museum members) and includes admission to the Museum’s galleries, which are open until 8:00 p.m.
