The Loft Film Fest continues tonight with a showcase of shorts by Arizona filmmakers and Once Upon a Time in Anatolia, which is described on the Loft's site as:
A group of men, including lawyers, gravediggers, police, government officials and a confessed killer, drive through the night looking for a body. The killer agreed to lead them to the corpse, which was buried near a fountain, but everything looks the same, he was drunk when he buried the body and now he can’t find it. As the unlikely entourage make their way through the Turkish steppes, in this unconventional road movie, relationships shift and nothing is what it seems. Directed by Nuri Burge Ceylan (DISTANT, THREE MONKEYS), this film, based on a true story, was co-winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes 2011 and is Turkey’s official submission for an Oscar.
