Turkish films take over MFA, Brattle goes Underground

Acclaimed directors Erden Kıral and Zeki Demirkubuz are among the filmmakers attending the 12th annual Boston Turkish Film Festival, running March 21 through April 7 at the Museum of Fine Arts. Co-presented by the Turkish American Cultural Society of New England and the MFA, and programmed by Erkut Gomulu, the festival opens at 7:30 p.m. with “Inside,” Demirkubuz’s newest film.

Demirkubuz’s work has screened in past editions of the BTFF, including in 2007 when he received an award for excellence in Turkish cinema. “Inside,” adapted from Dostoyevsky’s “Notes From Underground,” is about a group of friends whose dinner conversation progresses from fond reminiscences to old grievances and, eventually, to an ugly showdown.
