Sarajevo Film Festival presents a selection of photographic works from Ceylan’s rich artistic opus at the exhibition Turkey Cinemascope.
The opening of the exhibition Nuri Bilge Ceylan: Turkey Cinemascope took place today at noon, in National Gallery of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The exhibition will be opened until August 31st.
Ceylan’s photographs, just like his films, encourage the observer to think. They provide no obvious answers, but rather mere hints of emotion. The expressions on the faces of his subjects – both in film and in photography – are always ambivalent, reflecting the complexity of life and the human soul, and confirming Ceylan’s status as a talented narrator and a profoundly important and ethical artist.
The recipient of Honorary Heart of Sarajevo Award at the 24th Sarajevo Film Festival is one of today’s most acclaimed filmmakers. Ceylan received the Award in recognition of outstanding contribution to the art of film and support of Sarajevo Film Festival. Ceylan is also the honorary guest of the 24th Sarajevo Film Festival’s Tribute to the programme.
