Turkish fim 'Uc Maymun' to compete in Miami festival in US

Award-winning Turkish writer/director Nuri Bilge Ceylan's "Uc Maymun" (Three Monkeys) is picked to compete in Miami International Film Festival.

The festival, one of the most important movie events of the United States, will begin on March 6 until 15.

Ceylan, who won Cannes best director prize for his searing drama, will be the only Turkish filmmaker competing in the festival.

"Uc Maymun" will also be screened in theaters across the United States at the end of this month.

Ceylan depicts his film as the story of a family dislocated when small failings blow up into extravagant lies, battles against the odds to stay together by covering up the truth.

"In order to avoid hardship and responsibilities that would otherwise be impossible to endure, the family chooses to ignore the truth, not to see, hear or talk about it. But does playing ?Three Monkeys? invalidate the truth of its existence?" he says.
