2015 French film, 97 minutes, in Turkish
Early summer in a village in Northern Turkey. Five free-spirited teenaged sisters splash about on the beach with their male classmates. Though their games are merely innocent fun, a neighbor passes by and reports what she considers to be illicit behavior to the girls' family. The family overreacts, removing all “instruments of corruption,” like cell phones and computers, and essentially imprisoning the girls. As the elder sisters are married off, the younger ones bond together to avoid the same fate. Sponsored by the Department of English.
