Cohen Media Group brings GIRLS OF THE SUN to Blu-ray and DVD in August

Cohen Media Group has announced the release for the gritty new war drama GIRLS OF THE SUN that’s set to make its Blu-ray DVD and Digital debut on August 6th. Head inside for the details!

From the Press Release:

Charles S. Cohen, Chairman and CEO of Cohen Media Group, today announced that Cohen Media Group will release Eva Husson’s Palme d’Or nominee GIRLS OF THE SUN on Blu-ray and DVD, as well as digital platforms, on August 6, 2019. 

The visceral and compelling GIRLS OF THE SUN is based on a true story that reveals the strange and unexpected turns modern warfare can take. Somewhere in Iraqi Kurdistan, Bahar, commander of the all-female “Girls of the Sun” battalion, is preparing to liberate her hometown from the hands of ISIS extremists, hoping to find her son who is being held hostage. A French journalist, Mathilde, comes to cover the attack and bear witness to the story of these exceptional warriors. As their lives are turned upside down, the Girls of the Sun find themselves fighting for women, life and liberty. 

Bahar is played by international star Golshifteh Farahani (Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson, The Upside), while French actress-writer-director Emmanuelle Bercot (Polisse, It All Starts Today) plays Mathilde.   

GIRLS OF THE SUN is director Eva Husson’s follow-up to her acclaimed debut Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story). G. Allen Johnson of Datebook said GIRLS OF THE SUN “is at once a gritty war movie and an interior drama of suffering and perseverance in conditions few of us could imagine.” “It’s hard not to be swept up by a film that celebrates the indomitable female spirit with such gusto,” wrote James Mottram of the South China Morning Post. The film “gradually builds suspense and sympathy with an intimate character-driven approach that’s powerful without turning heavy-handed,” said Todd Jorgenson of Cinemalogue. 

Extras on the GIRLS OF THE SUN Blu-ray and DVD include a Q&A with director Eva Husson.
