    Divorce, Iranian Style

    directed by Kim Longinotto and Ziba Mir-Hosseini


    76 MINS, Color

    Divorce is a nasty affair, no matter where you live. However, as related in this revealing documentary by Kim Longinotto and Ziba Mir-Hosseini, many will be happy they don't live in Iran. While a man can leave his wife at any time, in Iran a woman can divorce only due to her husband's insanity, impotence or lack of financial support. An isolated camera, shooting the proceedings in a small, crowded Tehran divorce court, records a series of different couples as they appear before a judge, and reveals the brutal sexism of the Iranian legal system.
