Biography
Born in Isparta, Turkey, in 1964. After finishing secondary school, he moved to Istanbul. He started high school in Istanbul, but dropped out after his first semester, going to work in factories and workshops instead. Following the 1980 military coup, he served a three-year sentence for his membership in a political organization. In order to postpone his military service, he decided to go back to school. He finished high school through distance learning and entered the Department of Communications at Istanbul University. He began his film career as assistant director to Zeki Ökten in 1986, and worked as AD for various directors until he made Block- C (1994), his first feature film. Since then, he has continued to work as an auteur and independent filmmaker, writing his own original screenplays.

Inside / Zeki Demirkubuz

Unless he is ruthless with himself, a wise man can have no pride: Muharrem pressgangs his old friends into inviting him to dinner – no matter that he hates and is hated by them. The dinner starts off with a few harmless jibes and shows of bravado; but as time wears on and heads become fuddled, the conversation progresses steadily into the inglorious past. Old grievances come tumbling out into an ugly showdown. As the night becomes charged with tears, anger and regret, outrage spills onto the dark streets and into sleazy hotel rooms. Although they’re in league and he’s on his own, Muharrem has made up his mind. Either the filth is cleaned up that night or he dies. Otherwise he’ll never be rid of this sense of shame.
