Daniel Day-Lewis films to be screened at Istanbul Modern Cinema

Istanbul Modern Cinema’s first program at its temporary space is presenting the spectacular film career of Daniel Day-Lewis, who announced that he was retiring from acting last year. 

Lewis began his acting career with a role in “Sunday, Bloody Sunday” in 1971, and worked with important Hollywood directors such as Steven Spielberg and Martin Scorsese. 

Lewis is the actor with the most Academy Awards for his performances in the Irish production “My Left Foot” (1989) by Jim Sheridan, “There Will Be Blood” (2007) and “Lincoln” (2012). 

Until June 3, the new program by Istanbul Modern Cinema will present a glimpse into his career, which spans decades, and ranges from his last performance in “Phantom Thread” to “The Bounty” from 1984, and provides viewers a chance to watch the actor portray 10 different and magnetic characters at that very point where art and craft meets.
