GÜNEŞ ŞENSOY

Early summer in a village in Northern Turkey. Five free-spirited teenaged sisters splash about on the beach with their male classmates. Though their games are merely innocent fun, a neighbor passes by and reports what she considers to be illicit behavior to the girls’ family. The family overreacts, removing all “instruments of corruption,” like cell phones and computers, and essentially imprisoning the girls, subjecting them to endless lessons in housework in preparation for them to become brides. As the eldest sisters are married off, the younger ones bond together to avoid the same fate. The fierce love between them empowers them to rebel and chase a future where they can determine their own lives in Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s debut, a powerful portrait of female empowerment.mustang1

"Part of a welcome international wave of films made by women directors that focus on girls growing up in worlds of men - and on what they look like when no one's looking." -Ty Burr, Boston Globe

"Among Erguven's finest achievements with "Mustang" is casting such mesmerizing actresses to play characters who would be just as at home in a Chekhov production or an Instagram-worthy fashion shoot." -Ann Hornaday, Washington Postmustang2
