French Cinema Fest: Dreams, Escapes and Survival – Mustang

Fri, Mar 18 / 7 pm
Directed by Deniz Gamze Ergüven
2015, France, 97 min
Turkish w/ English subtitles

Dreams, Escapes and Survival is a French film festival organized by Alliance Française du Manitoba and Winnipeg Cinematheque to mark the 20th edition of the French Language and Francophony week. It is an invitation to discover films from different times and experience some sophisticated, vibrant and daring films from France. With the support of Institut Français this is the 2nd edition of the festival (in 2015, its title was Secrets, Lies and Betrayal).

Mustang, a 2015 Oscar nominee, is the thirty-seventh Academy Award nomination (including nine wins) for France. Five orphaned teenage sisters enjoy the summer in their village in northern Turkey, but one day, their romping with male friends is misinterpreted and reported to their family as sexual licentiousness. Determined to keep the girls pure, the family effectively imprisons them, prompting the girls to become even more closely knit as they rebel against their arranged marriages.
