Bio
Zeki Demirkubuz was 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. During those working class years, he engaged in leftist politics. Following the 1980 military coup he served a three-year sentence for his membership in a political organization. In prison, Demirkubuz developed a passionate interest in literature. He read the classics and started writing. Dostoyevsky and especially Crime and Punishment became a lasting inspiration in those years.
After his release, he worked as a hawker, traveling from one city to another in Anatolia. In order to postpone compulsory military service, Demirkubuz 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 assistant director for various directors until making Block-C (C Blok, 1994), his first feature film. After this first film, Demirkubuz continued to work as an auteur and independent filmmaker writing his own original screenplays. Film critics and international audiences noticed Demirkubuz with his second film, Innocence (Masumiyet, 1997) which was screened at Venice Film Festival and The Third Page (Üçüncü Sayfa, 1999) which was screened at several festivals in Turkey and Europe, including Locarno and Rotterdam. Following The Third Page, Demirkubuz started to work on his trilogy called Tales of Darkness. The first two parts of the trilogy Fate (Yazgı, 2001) and Confession (İtiraf, 2001) were screened at Un Certain Regard at Cannes in 2002. The Waiting Room (Bekleme Odası, 2003) in which Demirkubuz also played the leading role, concluded the trilogy. Destiny (Kader, 2006), the prequel to Innocence, has been followed by Envy (Kıskanmak, 2009). In 2012 Zeki Demirkubuz directed the film Inside (Yeralti).
