Luna Palace Cinemas says
Join us on Thursday 23 June for a special event to celebrate the opening of the powerful Oscar-nominated coming-of-age Turkish drama MUSTANG, screening exclusively at Cinema Paradiso.

Enjoy some authentic Turkish baklava* from Eastern Gold Sweet, tastings of Brown Brothers' Mosacato Gold and Moscato Rose Gold, pre-show belly dancing from Belyssa Academy of Danse Orientale and the chance to win a piece of jewellery from Park Lane Jewellery and skin care vouchers from Jacquie Berkhout Facing Facts before being one of the first to catch Turkish-French film director Deniz Gamze Erg├╝ven's Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film.

Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, MUSTANG tells the story of five orphaned sisters who, in a remote, seaside village in northern Turkey, innocently celebrate the end of the school year at the beach with some boys.

The supposed debauchery of their actions causes their home to progressively transform into a prison; classes on housework and cooking replace school, and marriages are arranged. The five sisters, driven by the same desire for freedom, fight back against the limits imposed upon them.

Nominated for a best foreign film Oscar in 2016, and anchored by sensational performances and a moving soundtrack by Warren Ellis (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds), MUSTANG is a powerful portrait of female empowerment.

Come join us for this night of Turkish delights!

Pre-show Turkish treats and entertainment from 6pm. Screening starts at 6.30pm.

(Turkish w/English subtitles).
