Turkish Casting Director Harika Uygur Wins Locarno’s European Casting Award

3 August 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Locarno, Switzerland — Turkish casting director Harika Uygur is the winner of the Locarno Film Festival’s European Casting Award for her work on the ensemble cast of “Mustang,” director Deniz Gamze Erguven’s foreign-language Oscar-nominated debut about five sisters contending with conservative mores in contemporary rural Turkey.

Chemistry between the mostly previously unknown talented young actresses — Elit Iscan, Gunes Nezihe Sensoy, Doga Zeynep Doguslu, Ilayda Akdogan, and Tugba Sunguroglu, who also look alike – is considered crucial to making “Mustang” a breakout hit.

Uygur (pictured), who is the founder of an acting studio in Istanbul this year, became a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. She recently finished casting the Iraqui-Kurdish director’s “Lady Winsley,” a French, Turkish, Belgian co-production.

Uygur was voted the winner among 16 nominated casting directors by the 83 members of the International Casting Directors Network (Icdn), which represents casting directors in 24 countries.

The prize was awarded during a ceremony at Locarno »

Arranged in nine-parts, the extensive series is a major effort to make Nestler’s work better-known in the United States, where it has rarely shown. Nestler is a singular filmmaker, one for whom I have great affection, but also one who came to making films in a time and place singular in and of itself. The movies Germany produced for roughly the fifteen years after the reformation of the country after World War II is a period often misunderstood by cinephiles and, at least until recently, underrepresented in retrospective programming outside of the country itself. In the 1950s and 1960s, German leftists were outraged by the continuing presence of Nazis in the government of the young Federal Republic, and by the way that polite society did »
