‘Mustang’ wins European Parliament’s 2015 film prize

Erguven accepted her award during a ceremony in Strasbourg on Tuesday, the European Parliament announced on its website. “The echo you give me through this prize brings further questioning to the topic of this film, so thank you very much,” Erguven said as she picked up her award, presented by European Parliament head Martin Schulz.

“Mustang,” which is France’s official submission to next year’s Academy Awards, follows five young sisters in a village in northern Turkey throughout one summer as their home becomes a prison after their grandmother finds out they had played on the streets with boys from their village on their way home from school. When instruction in homemaking replaces school, and marriages start being arranged, the sisters must find ways to get around the imposed constraints.

The LUX Film Prize, launched in 2007, each year honors a fiction, animated or documentary feature that illustrates the founding values of European identity, Europe’s cultural diversity or provide insights into the debate on the EU integration process. Voted on by the members of the European Parliament, the award grants the winner financial support to fund its subtitling in the 24 official languages spoken across the European Union.
