Directed by Kim Longinotto


  • Information


Two films about the status of women in modern Iran by Ziba Mir-Hosseini and Kim Longinotto. 'Divorce Iranian Style' provides a portrait of several weeks in an Iranian divorce court and gives a unique appreciation of the intimate lives of women, who are usually regarded in the West as being second class citizens compared to men. 'Runaway' looks at life in a refuge for young women in Tehran.

Following the stories of five girls, who have run away from home, it gives a fascinating insight into the hopes and dreams of young women in a mainly male dominated culture.
