¡Globalquerque! International Cinema Series: Mustang (France/Turkey)
September 13, 2018
In September, the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series showcases the ¡Globalquerque! International Cinema Series, presented in partnership with ¡Globalquerque!, New Mexico’s Fourteenth Celebration of World Music and Culture, returning to the NHCC on September 21 & 22. Films in the series are from countries whose artists are represented in this year’s festival.
When five orphaned teenage sisters are seen playing innocently on the beach with their male classmates, and reported to their guardians by a prying neighbor, the conservative family essentially imprisons the girls, removing all “instruments of corruption” like cell phones and computers, and subjecting them to endless lessons in housework in preparation for arranged marriages. As the oldest sisters are married off, the younger ones bond together to avoid the same fate.
2015; Deniz Gamze Ergüven; Turkish with English subtitles; 97 minutes; rated PG-15.
