A Sundance Channel Original Documentary : THE GLASS HOUSE

Documentarian Hamid Rahmanian lifts the veil on a segment of Iranian society with inspiring profiles of four independent women coping with poverty, repression and physical brutality. At Tehran’s unique Omid e Mehr rehabilitation center for women, Nazila, an aspiring rap singer; Samira, a 14-year-old with a drug addiction; and Mitra and Sussan, who have endured insults, beatings and rape at home, learn the importance of self-esteem, personal expression and tools to take control of their lives. “Moving and harrowing” — Philadelphia Weekly.

THE GLASS HOUSE is a Sundance Channel Original Documentary and premieres on November 16 at 9PM E/P.
