 MUSTANG-A Drama from France/Turkey (97 min)-One summer day five orphaned sisters are out swimming.  They are out playing “chicken” with some boys. When one of their neighbors see them, they are shocked by their “lewd and illicit” carrying on with the boys.  The girls live with their grandmother and uncle, who don’t understand the girls “western” ways.  Village gossip now paints the sisters as harlots.  Their guardians little by little take away their freedom such as cell phones, internet, going to school.  The guardians then take them out of school so they can be taught how to be good housewives in order to be married.   Mustang becomes a study of what is like in a suppressed society where repression breeds rebellion.  The first time woman director questions society’s most fundamental assumptions – that women are responsible for men’s urges. This movie has won 29 awards and nominated for 42 others including an Academy Award for best picture.  So come join us. No reservation required. Refreshments will be served.

This course will be led by Kelly Covone-Henning, Aging Educator and Community Resource Coordinator at the
Aging Institute of UPMC Senior Services and the University of Pittsburgh, and Michelle Rockwell, Lead Link Coordinator for Pennsylvania Link to Aging and Disability Resource Center.
