France/Germany/Qatar/Turkey | 2015 | col | dir. Deniz Gamze Ergüven, with Günes Nezihe Sensoy, Doga Zeynep Doguslu, Elit Iscan

In a village in the north of Turkey, Lale and her four sisters come home from school, innocently playing with boys. The supposed debauchery of their games causes a scandal with unintended consequences. The family home slowly turns into a prison. Driven by the same desire for freedom, the five sisters fight back. This first feature, shot with grace and youthful energy, was France’s entry for the Best Film in a Foreign Language award at the 2016 Oscars.
