A restored copy of “Üç Arkadaş” (Three Friends), Turkish director Memduh Ün’s 1958 melodrama that is billed as his masterpiece, will be shown today at a special gala at the Atlas Theater in Beyoğlu as part of the ongoing İstanbul International Film Festival’s “Turkish Classics Revisited” program.

 The film, starring Fikret Hakan, Muhterem Nur, Semih Sezerli and Salih Tozan in its title roles, tells of three musicians who come across a blind girl who earns a living by selling safety pins on the street.
