Product Description

Two films by one of Britain's foremost documentary filmmakers, Kim Longinotto. DIVORCE is a hilarious, tragic, stirring, fly-on-the-wall look at several weeks in an Iranian divorce court. It provides a unique window into the intimate circumstances of Iranian women's lives; RUNAWAY is set in a refuge for girls in Tehran and follows the stories of five young runaway girls who arrive there, having fled their homes due to domestic discord. The film explores their experiences of male authority, their longing for freedom and respect, and their hopes for a more positive future. Awards for DIVORCE IRANIAN STYLE Winner - Viewpoint International Documentary Film Festival; Chicago International Film Festival Silver Higo Award; San Francisco International Film Festival Grand Prize for Best Documentary. Awards for RUNANWAY Winner - Philadelphia Festival of World Cinema; Osnabruck Film Festival Children's Rights Award; Zanzibar International Film Festival Silver Dhow Award.

Format: DVD
Kim Longinotto is one of UK's best documentary film-makers and these two films just released on Second Run DVD are two of her finest.
DIVORCE IRANIAN STYLE follows a group of women who are trying to secure divorces from abusive husbands or unhappy marriages through Tehran's divorce courts. It's not only incredibly eye-opening, it's also funny and awash with witty human insight and paints a portrait of wise, wily women who are trying to make a better life for themselves. Instead of presenting us with a picture of zealous law-makers and religious fanatics, we see an entirely unexpected Iran - one of debate and of problems familiar to us all.
Its companion piece, RUNAWAY is - I think - an even more compelling documentary. Set in a Tehran refuge for runaway girls who've fled violent and unhappy and abusive families. Like their older counterparts in DIVORCE, these girls display a remarkable veracity, independence and determination in the face of sometimes terrible situations.
Kim Longinotto's great talent is her intimate, yet observational approach.The drama unfolds in front of the camera - unforced and organic.
And finally, we really care what happens to these women and girls. These wonderful humanist documentaries are both moving and inspiring.

Great insight into the Iranian family court process, how the woman try and get their way in a system that tries to keep them married whatever the circumstance. Have to be inventive....hats off to them. I do also love the little girl, daughter of the court transcriber, she is the most wonderful insight of all. Enjoy.
