Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s first feature Kasaba premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in 1998, but it was when his third feature, Uzak, won the Cannes Grand Prix in 2003 that he became more widely known. Since then in Cannes he has won the Grand Prix a second time for Climates and the Palme d’Or for Winter Sleep in 2014.
This Blu-ray boxset from New Wave Films features all of his eight films made so far, the last four of which, co-written with his wife Ebru, have propelled him to the ranks of the very top directors working today.
Kasaba, Clouds of May, Uzak, Climates and Three Monkeys, plus his first short Koza, are now being released in this collection on Blu-ray for the first time. Once upon a Time in Anatolia, Winter Sleep and The Wild Pear Tree make up the set of his complete films to date.
Bonus features include several interviews with Nuri Bilge Ceylan made over the course of his career, plus making-of documentaries.
Nuri Bilge Ceylan: The Complete Films is released by New Wave Films on 28 October.
The competition closes on Thursday 7 November 2019 and is open to UK residents only.
