Set in a remote forest ashram in India, the film explores the daily life of the followers of Swami Dayananda, one of the last teachers of Vedanta. Rather than focus on the Swami or the intricacies of his teachings, Gurukulam places the audience in the ashram, evoking a visceral presence of the place and a tactile sense of the sacred.

Evocative of both The Virgin Suicides and Lorca’s House of Bernarda Alba, this (French-made) Turkish drama is the tale of five young, free-spirited sisters, house-bound and married off, one by one, at the insistence of their conservative muslim uncle and grandmother. Rich in character, nuance and beauty, Mustang has won international acclaim everywhere it has shown. Nominee: Academy Awards, Best Foreign Language Film
