Zeki Demirkubuz

Starting from his debut C-Blok (1994), Demirkubuz has developed a strictly original model of cinema – he writes his screenplays himself, he’s the producer, sometimes cinematographer, editor and even actor. All his films, e.g. Masumiyet (1997), were appreciated at festivals in Turkey and abroad.

Born in 1964 in Isparta, Turkey. He graduated from the Communication Faculty of the University of Istanbul. After his studies he became an assistant to the director Zeki Ökten. Striving for independence, Demirkubuz established a production company, Mavi Film, through which he still produces his films. Starting from his debut C-Blok (1994), Demirkubuz has developed a strictly original model of cinema – he writes his screenplays himself, he’s the producer, sometimes cinematographer, editor and even actor. All his films, e.g. Masumiyet (1997), were appreciated at festivals in Turkey and abroad. Demirkubuz’s work, especially the cycle Tales About Darkness (Karanlık üstüne öyküler), is rooted in the Turkish reality. It composes a consistent whole as a universal portrait of man abandoned to fate and destructive emotions.
