Divorce Iranian Style

Kim Longinotto & Ziba Mir-Hosseini • 76m

Directed by Kim Longinotto & Ziba Mir-Hosseini • 1998 • Iran/UK Divorce Iranian Style goes behind-the-scenes at a divorce court in Tehran, following three couples as they try to resolve their conflicts. Like a real-life forerunner to Asghar Farhadi’s Oscar-winner A Separation, the film offers an intimate and nuanced look at marital strife that is both all too familiar, and yet, also unique to its patriarchal culture.
