MES presents: Once Upon a Time in Anatolia

In the rural area around the Anatolian town of Keskin, the local prosecutor, police commissar, and doctor lead a search for the victim of a murder to which a suspect named Kenan and his mentally challenged brother confessed. However, the search is proving more difficult than expected as Kenan is fuzzy as to the body's exact location. As the group continues looking, its members can't help but chat among themselves about both trivia and their deepest concerns in an investigation that is proving more trying than any of them expected.

Co-written and directed by Nuri Bilge Ceylan (the winner of the Palme d'Or in 2014, co-winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes in 2011)  

Open to the public.
