Turkish Women In Cinema: Oyun (The Play) Screening & Discussion says
Co-presented with Raindrop Women's Association-Austin

When nine women from a mountain village in southern Turkey decide to write and perform a play based on their life stories, aspects of their personalities emerge that they never knew existed. For days on end, under the curious gazes of the village men, they work tirelessly, discuss and create with much fun a play, "The Outcry of Women!" Director Pelin Esmer's documentary observes the creative stages leading up to the production of the play, and shows us how nine subtly but significantly different women emerge after its staging.

Special guest Dr. Jeannette Okur, professor of UT Middle Eastern Studies will join us for a discussion after the screening.
