Making Curriculum Pop

Woza, this looks like it might be very moving - I'm excited to check it out on DVD. Looks like it would be a great companion film for Reading Lolita in Tehran

Superb cinema verité style. It deftly portrays a spirit of hopefulness. - Variety
The forbidden stories of an ensemble of outcasts should not be underestimated. - Screen Daily

The compelling female subjects make 'The Glass House' a crowd favorite. - Steve Ramos, Movie Jungle

The fringes of Iranian society can be a lonely place, especially if you are a teenage girl with few resources to fall back on. The Glass House follows four girls striving to pull themselves out of the margins by attending a one-of-kind rehabilitation center in uptown Tehran. Forget about the Iran that you’ve seen before. With a virtually invisible camera, the girls of The Glass House take us on a never-before-seen tour of the underclass of Iran with their brave and defiant stories: Samira struggles to overcome forced drug addiction; Mitra harnesses abandonment into her creative writing; Sussan teeters on a dangerous ledge after years of sexual abuse; and Nazila burgeons out of her hatred with her blazing rap music. This groundbreaking documentary reflects a side of Iran few have access to or paid attention to: a society lost to its traditions with nothing meaningful to replace them and a group of courageous women working to instill a sense of empowerment and hope into the minds and lives of otherwise discarded teenage girls.
