Turkish director in the running for the Palm d’Or for third time

Latest update : 2008-05-18

“Three Monkeys” by Nuri Bilge Ceylan, part of the official competition, tells the story of a family destroyed by a lie. In 2003, the Turkish director won the Jury’s Grand Prize for “Uzak.”

In this feature-length film, which utilises various medias, Nuri Bilge Ceylan depicts a family torn apart by small secrets that turn into big lies, but which tries hopelessly to ignore the truth. The family refuses to see, hear or speak about the truth, just like the fable of the three monkeys.

 

This is Ceylan’s fifth submission to the Cannes Film Festival competition and his third time competing for the Palm d’Or.  

 

Elizabeth Tchoungui sat down with Nuri Bilge Ceylan in Cannes for an exclusive interview. Watch the interview in its entirety by clicking on “The Cannes Reports” in the right-hand column.
