The Screen at Contemporary: Funny Girl

09 Jan 2019

The Screen at Contemporary presents its winter 2018 film season, Funny Girl. This season we explore outspoken, quietly rebellious, sometimes nasty and subversive female characters.
 
Five orphaned sisters in rural Turkey are caught playing with some local boys. They become imprisoned in their home by their conservative guardians, when plans of impeding arranged marriages are made. Told through a melancholic and dream like lens the fear of the female sexuality and the justifications used to supress it are examined with intelligence and nuance that’s beguiling and powerful.
