    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.

    Iran, Veiled Appearances

    directed by Thierry Michel


    88 MINS, Color

    Appeared at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival
    Free of the restrictions that would have hindered an Iranian filmmaker, Belgian documentarian Thierry Michel visits Iran with the goal of discovering the reality behind the pervasive stereotypes that define the country in the West. Twenty-three years after the Islamic revolution, Michel finds a country of contradictions: young Iranians yearn for cultural freedom while nearby paramilitary religious sects celebrate martyrdom. Troubling and eye-opening, IRAN, VEILED APPEARANCES presents a revealing portrait of a country on the eve of transition. TVPG (AC, AL, V)
