Synopsis:
Two films by one of Britain's foremost documentary filmmakers, Kim Longinotto.

Divorce Iranian Style (1997)
Divorce Iranian Style unfolds 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. Astute and beautifully observed, the film reveals the ingenuity and humour with which Iranian women negotiate the restrictions of their society.
Runaway (2001)
Runaway follows the stories of five young girls who arrive at a refuge in Iran's capital city Tehran, having fled from abusive or neglectful families. Some are in despair, others are simply mischievous; but somehow they must all learn to face the future.

These documentaries are very interesting to watch and to see the cultural differences in divorce between the west and the middle east.
