MUSTANG
Directed by Deniz Gamze Ergüven, 2015, PG-13, 1h34, France-Turkey (Courtesy of Cohen Media Group)
With Dogba Doguslu, Elit Iscan, Gunes Sensoy, Ilayda Akdogan, Tugba Sunguroglu

Presented in partnership with the American Turkish Society, with the support of Sézane.

It’s the beginning of summer in a small village in Northern Turkey. Lale (Sensoy) and her four sisters come home from school, innocently playing with boys. The supposed debauchery of their games arouses a scandal with unexpected consequences and causes the family home to be transformed into a prison. Lessons on housework and cooking replace school, and marriages begin to be arranged. The five sisters, driven by the same desire for independence, fight back against the limits imposed on them.

FILMS ON THE GREEN FESTIVAL

The 2019 Films on the Green lineup focuses on female directors in French and Francophone cinema through a selection of 13 movies. This 12th edition pays tribute to “Women Behind the Camera” in honor of Agnès Varda, feminist filmmaker and pioneer of the French New Wave, who passed away earlier this year.
