    <a href="https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/967277"><strong><span style="font-size: 20px;">Click here to RSVP</span></strong></a><br /> <br /> Directed by Deniz Gamze Erg&uuml;ven, 2015<br /> <br /> Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, Mustang takes place in a village in northern Turkey where the innocent flirtations of five young sisters set off a series of dire consequences. The girls are pulled from school, and the family home is turned into a sort of prison where the sisters are trained to become dutiful and submissive wives. But as this deeply moving story unfolds, their passionate spirits cannot be confined, and one by one, they find ways to break free of their constraints.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <em>Presented by the Global Film Series</em>

    04/05/2017 - 05/19/2017 All Day Event
    Babson Campus - Hollister Hall - Lobby
    <strong><span style="font-size: 20px;"><a href="https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/967288">Click here to RSVP</a></span></strong><br /> <br /> Artist Talk and Reception: Wednesday, April 5, 5:00 P.M.<br /> Exhibit on View: April 5&ndash;May 19<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Sachiko Akiyama&rsquo;s work brings together artistic influences of Brancusi, Egyptian funerary sculptures, medieval Christian woodcarvings, and contemporary sculptors with the artist&rsquo;s personal experiences and Japanese heritage, notably Japanese fairy tales. &nbsp;Her carvings convey a sense of centeredness and direct connections to nature that opens up the door to creation mythologies and other mystical possibilities. The figures&rsquo; relationships to flora, fauna, and the elements speak metaphorically to the ways we find meaning in our lives and meet the challenges of our surroundings.

She launched a Kickstarter campaign in 2014 to produce a documentary film. Her campaign was supported by nearly 9,000 Kickstarter donors who pledged more than $330,000. Babson College's Center for Women's Entrepreneurial Leadership (CWEL) was proudly one of the first corporate-level sponsors of the project. </span></p> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri;">Released in 2016, the documentary "Embrace" follows Taryn&rsquo;s crusade as she traverses the globe talking to experts, women in the street and well-known personalities about the alarming rates of body image issues that are seen in people of all body types. In her effervescent style, Taryn explores the factors contributing to this problem and seeks to find solutions.</span></p> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri;">Embrace had its world premiere at the 2016 Sydney Film Festival, where it was chosen as one of the festival directors&rsquo; top 5 picks.

Surprising because the film canvasses issues far beyond the superficial stories about Photoshop, skinny supermodels and unattainable beauty. In her debut film, Bruffit, who garnered attention with arresting before and after photographs of herself posted on social media, has created an inspiring work in which the different ideals of beauty are explored." </span></p> <p style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt;"><span style="font-family: Calibri;">-- Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile</span></p> <br /> <div class="telerik_paste_container" style="border-width: 0px; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; left: 4px; top: 21px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden; position: absolute;">&nbsp;</div> <span id="docs-internal-guid-d4fc8535-6af2-8138-1021-416d790d4bbc"></span> <p style="line-height: 1.38; margin-top: 0pt; margin-bottom: 0pt;" dir="ltr">&nbsp;</p> <br /> <strong>Event Cost:</strong><br /> FREE <br /> You may opt in to make a $5 donation to support the Center for Women&rsquo;s Entrepreneurial Leadership.
