The Cinematic Landscapes of Nuri Bilge Ceylan: The Turkish filmmaker is one of the most highly regarded filmmakers in world cinema, and two decades into a quietly evolving career, Ceylan gets a retrospective at the Pacific Film Archive. The six-film series begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 24, with “Winter Sleep,” which won the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014. The three-hour, 15-minute movie, filmed in the remote steppes of Cappadocia in central Turkey, is about an ego-driven former actor who moves to his hometown rural village with his young wife.
