Free outdoor screening of Mustang by Deniz Gamze Ergüven on June 28 at Transmitter Park, Brooklyn. #FilmsOnTheGreen
It’s the beginning of summer in a small village in Northern Turkey. Lale 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.
