Director Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s 2015 film Mustang depicts gender-based discrimination in living color. This Academy Award-nominated tale is told through the eyes of Lale, a Turkish teen who, along with her four sisters, is forced into a life of restriction by her conservative family. After being caught consorting with male classmates, the girls must trade their cellphones, computers and social lives for tea time with potential husbands and lessons in housework. While the older sisters are married off, the younger girls find ways to rebel against a life without choice, showing the strength of the human spirit in the face of cultural confines.

Price: $12.
