“Mustang” Showing Wednesday, October 19

Posted on 10/14/2016 8:17:07 AM

The Student Film Series will show Mustang, hosted by the International Education Association, on Wednesday, October 19, at 5:00 p.m. in the Humanities building, room 225. Five beautiful and beguiling young sisters become imprisoned in their own home, forbidden by their controlling, conservative elders from having any contact with the outside world—especially boys.

While it takes place in a very specific part of the world, its emotions are universally recognizable, as is the powerful yearning of its young, female characters to establish their own identities and assert their own desires. Student association members will introduce the film and lead a brief discussion afterwards.
