ABOUT DIVORCE IRANIAN STYLE

For our next watch party, we're hopping back in time more than twenty years to this landmark doc from 1998. Join us to discover, or re-discover, Kim Longinotto's observational classic.

Acclaimed filmmaker Kim Longinotto takes her camera inside an Iranian divorce court, providing a subtle and intimate look at the lives of women in a country stereotypically associated with fanaticism and oppression.

Working with Iranian co-director Ziba Mir-Hosseini, Longinotto follows three cases: Jamileh is mistreated by her husband, Maryam is fighting for the custody of her children, and 16-year-old Ziba wants to divorce her 38-year-old spouse.

Astute and beautifully observed, the film reveals the ingenuity and humour with which these Iranian women negotiate the restrictions of their society.

Director Kim Longinotto will join us online for a Q&A at 8.30pm on Friday 24th April.
