Event Originally produced by Cohen Film Collection in 2015.
Summary This **Oscar**-nominated drama follows five free-spirited sisters in a Turkish village. While playing innocent games with their friends, 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 this powerful portrait of female empowerment. Nominated for an **Oscar**, a **Golden Globe**, a **BAFTA Award** and a **Film Independent Spirit Award** for Best Foreign Language Film. Winner of the Label Europa Cinemas and nominated for the Golden Camera and the Queer Palm at the **Cannes Film Festival**. *"Mustang immediately stands out amidst the largely male-dominated efforts of contemporary cinema, its concerns distinctly feminine in constitution, its context specific in circumstance yet universal in scope." - Jordan Cronk, **Cinema Scope***
