Golden Globe nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, as well as France’s submission for Oscar consideration, this tale of female empowerment is the remarkable feature debut of director Deniz Gamze Ergüven. Her story, set in northern Turkey, focuses on five free-spirited teenage sisters who are virtually imprisoned after they’re seen interacting with local boys. Their family removes all “instruments of corruption” like cell phones and computers, and subjects them to endless lessons in housekeeping to prepare them for becoming brides. As the eldest sisters are married off, the younger ones bond together to rebel and chase a future they can determine for themselves. In Turkish with English subtitles. Writers: Deniz Gamze Ergüven, Alice Winocour. Director: Deniz Gamze Ergüven. (France/Turkey 2015) 94 min.
