Paris-based CG Cinema and Kinology Step Into Turkish Drama ‘Mustang’

PARIS– Charles Gillibert’s CG Cinema, the outfit behind Olivier Assayas’ Cannes-competing “Clouds of Sils Maria,”  is set to produce of Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s debut, “Mustang.”

Co-written by Alice Winocour (“Augustine”) and Gamze Ergüven, the contemporary drama explores the dichotomy between religion and secularism, tradition and modernity through the tale of five teenage girls living in a remote village of Turkey. Pic follows the youngest, Lale, who is 13 years old, as she tries to break free with her sisters from the destiny that their family and traditions want to impose on them.

Gregoire Melin’s Kinology has acquired international sales to “Mustang.” Ad Vitam will handle the distribution in France.

CG Cinema is producing the film, which started shooting today, with Germany’s Vistamar and Turkey’s BAM Films.

Pic stars local newcomers including Gunes Sensoy, Doga Zeynep Doğuşlu, Tuğba Sunguroğlu, Ilayda Akdoğan, among others.

An up-and-coming Turkish femme filmmaker, Gamze Ergüven studied at France’s prestigious La Femis school, directed the critically-aclaimed short “Bir Damla Su” as a graduation film. It played at Cannes’ Cinefondation and won a prize at Locarno.

CG Cinema’s current slate boasts Mia Hansen Love’s “Eden” which will world premiere at Toronto and  New York Film Festival.
