The Cinema Guild Picks Up Cannes Winner

Written by: FFT Webmaster | July 1st, 2011

The Cinema Guild, a New York-based specialty distributor, is the apparent winner for U.S. rights for ONCE UPON A TIME IN ANATOLIA, which shared the Grand Prix at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. The film is the latest masterwork from celebrated Turkish director Nuri Bilge Ceylan. A haunting story about a group of men, among them a local prosecutor, doctor, police chief and two murder suspects, who go in search of a missing body in the Anatolian steppes. Ceylan is an international festival favorite, whose film DISTANT won both the Grand Prix and the Best Actor prize at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival and whose THREE MONKEYS won him the Best Director award at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival.
