Sisters Apart – YourScreen Free Film of the Month

The latest free online film that CFS is providing in conjunction with YourScreen is Sisters Apart (2020) and is a Greek/German co-production, written and directed by Daphne Charizani whose most recent work was the screenplay for The Audition (2019). Her script for Sisters Apart is well thought-out and considered and the character development is convincing, giving a credible and moving narrative and can be viewed free by using the special code which will be sent in an all members email.

“Rojda (Rosa) is torn between her Kurdish roots and her German identity as a Bundeswehr soldier when she volunteers for a mission to train female Kurdish soldiers in Iraq to fight ISIS. No one must know that she is actually looking for her missing sister. Although shot on a small budget the script and excellent performances by the two lead actresses makes Sisters Apart a compelling drama. A strong example of how clear-sighted ideas trump production design.”

If you would prefer something lighter and less challenging Rosa’s Wedding is still available free on YourScreen (Screen One) by using the code sent out in a members email on 25 January. See Rosa’s Wedding film notes for the synopsis and director’s note and here for film trailer.

The YourScreen special offer of a 50% discount to CFS members is still also valid for all other films on the YourScreen platform and members can continue to use the CFS discount code for this film previously sent to them.
