THURSDAY, MAY 19 | MUSTANG


Academy Award nominee Best Foreign Film. Set in a remote Turkish village, five orphaned
sisters are seen innocently playing with boys on a beach. Their scandalized over-reactive
guardians confine them for such illicit behavior and arrange forced marriages. Removing all
“instruments of corruption,” like cell phones and computers, they essentially imprison the girls,
preparing them for marriage. As the eldest sisters are married off, the younger ones bond together
to avoid the same fate, allowing them to choose their own futures in this powerful portrait of
female empowerment. "Mustang delivers a bracing — and thoroughly timely — message with
humor, sensuality and bravado." In Turkish with English subtitles.

Film running time is 100 minutes. Rated PG-13. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Film at 7:00 p.m.

$10 tickets sold at the door, in advance at the Center for the Arts, or online.
