Miami Beach Cinematheque. June 17th, 2009. 8:30 p.m.
The 2006 film Climates (Iklimler), directed by Turkish filmmaker Nuri Bilge Ceylan and featuring Ebru Ceylan, Nuri Bilge Ceylan and Nazan Kirilmis, will be screened at the Miami Beach Cinematheque on June 17th, 2009 at 8:30 p.m. in collaboration with Emerging Pictures.
Winner of the prestigious FIPRESCI Award at Cannes, Climates is Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s sublime follow-up to his Cannes multi-award winner Distant. Beautifully drawn and meticulously observed, the film vividly recalls the cinema of Antonioni with its poetic use of landscape and the incisive, exquisitely visual rendering of loneliness, loss and the often-elusive nature of happiness. During a sweltering summer vacation on the Aegean coast, the relationship between middle-aged professor Isa (played by Ceylan himself) and his younger, television producer girlfriend Bahar (Ceylan’s real-life wife) brutally implodes.
