JANUARY FILM - MUSTANG 9th January, Connaught Studio

Our January film is the rescheduled screening of MUSTANG. The 2015 directorial debut of Turkish-French film director Deniz Gamze Ergüven, MUSTANG is set in a remote Turkish village and depicts the lives of five young orphaned sisters and the challenges they face. A gritty brutal coming-of-age story that grabs you with its own sense of haunting melancholy, as well as an increasing feeling of urgency and outrage.

Internationally acclaimed, MUSTANG was shown during 2015 Cannes Directors Fortnight where it won The Europa Cinemas Label Award. It was also nominated for Best Foreign Language film at 88th Academy Awards as well as at the Golden Globe Awards, and won four at Paris's 41st César Awards.

***** "An accomplished study of what it means to be young and female in Turkey." - The Guardian

**** "Rich with cinematic contradictions: joyful but tragic; gorgeous but ugly. A realistic fairy tale." - Little White Lies

Screening is at 8.15pm on Monday 9th January at the Connaught Studios, Worthing. Tickets from the previous November screening are still valid.

Our next screening will be on Monday January 23rd. Film tbc.

The film is free to film club members (£35 year for 12+ films, + free use of our DVD library), or £7 to non-members. Details of how to join can be found here and don't forget to follow us on Facebook
