Divorce Iranian style by Kim Longinotto( visu )
23 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 328 libraries worldwide
'Divorce Iranian style' is a film about Iranian family law, which is the Islamic law of the Shia school. Filmed in one of the Sharia courts, the documentary includes selected footage of three different divorce cases. Procedures in the Sharia courts are very different from those of the Family Court in Australia. In the selected sessions shown, a kindly judge presided over court proceedings, assisted by a female secretary. The litigants appeared in person, accompanied by relatives and sometimes children, but unrepresented by lawyers. Procedures seemed very informal. The litigants presented their cases before the judge, and even argued vehemently with spouses before the court. There was no formal calling of evidence from witnesses. The court was usually very reluctant to grant a divorce, recommending reconciliation instead, as seen here. Includes footage of a family arbitration, in which uncles on both sides came with the parties to try to settle a dispute about entitlements. In the cases presented, issues dealt with includes, the wife's entitlement to her marriage gift (mahr) when seeking a divorce from her husband. Evidently, family law problems, such as, divorce, custody and access of children, and property settlement are very similar in Iran and Australia. But, the court procedures, and some of the outcomes would be very different from what would be expected in Australia

Pink saris by Kim Longinotto( visu )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 163 libraries worldwide
The "Pink Gang" is a group of women who wear pink saris as a symbol of their revolt against their society. They are victims of domestic violence, rape and social exclusion. Their champion is Sampat Pal Devi, who takes up their cases of social injustice, often perpetrated by their husbands' extended families, with whom they're forced to live. Declaring 'women have nothing but their tears; what else do they have?', Sampat Pal has learned from experience. Once a child-bride and a victim of abuse herself, Sampat has no fear. She fought back and escaped the family, and now beleaguered women from throughout Uttar Pradesh seek her out, looking for the support and strength to do the same. Sampat Pal laudably takes up their causes, dramatically throwing herself into the middle of family dramas, yet for all her spirited righteousness, she can be forced to compromise in the face of the entrenched conventions and traditions she is railing against

Salma by Kim Longinotto( visu )
5 editions published in 2013 in Tamil and Hindi and held by 84 libraries worldwide
When Salma, a young Muslim girl in a south Indian village, was 13 years old, her family locked her up for 25 years, forbidding her to study and forcing her into marriage. During that time, words were Salma's salvation. She began covertly composing poems on scraps of paper and, through an intricate system, was able to sneak them out of the house, eventually getting them into the hands of a publisher. Against the odds, Salma became the most famous Tamil poet. Only then can she take the first step to discovering her freedom and challenge the traditions and code of conduct in her village. Master documentarian Kim Longinotto trains her camera on an iconoclastic woman. Salma's extraordinary story is one of courage and resilience. Salma has hopes for a different life for the next generation of girls, but as she witnesses upon her return to her home village, familial ties run deep, and change happens very slowly. The film shows why the goal of global education of girls is one of the most critical areas of empowerment and development of women worldwide
