Turkey's film board has banned the screening of director Lars von Trier's movie "Nymphomaniac Volume 1" at cinemas in the country, because of the film's sex scenes. Cem Erkul, who heads the Cinema General Directorate, said Wednesday the eight-member board voted 6-2 this week that the film is "pushing the boundaries of porn," and is unfit for public viewing. The film was due to be released this month.
