1965 Women's Prison (Nedamatgah)

Documentary by Kamran Shirdel

Synopsis: "Women's Prison" recounts the life of the prisoners and the problems their families encounter in their struggle to survive. Here again filmmaker Kamran Shirdel employs the cinema verité style. The interviews with the prisoners, social workers and teachers serve as commentaries for "constructed" documentary images. The technical process shows the extent to which solving social problems depends on everyone's cooperation and participation. Certainly prisoners alone cannot offer the remedy to the entire catalog of social ills that propel these women into delinquency.

You got it all wrong.

All I'm saying is: do not wish war in/on your country. For even today, 20 yrs later, I wake up at nite suffering from nightmares.

I have no answer as to Iran. But I know one thing, NO woman with a baby in her arms should die. 

Btw, Milošević was not my president, quite the opposite. I was just intrigued by your spelling.

Nite ;))

hey, Rea... So, it's OK if Iranian people get

mutilated by the mullahs and their thugs but not the other way around!? Or, are you one of those idealist that thinks they can sit across the table and reason with the barbaric mullahs?

Before I leave.

Have you ever seen a mother with a child in her arms walk over an APM ? I have.

People like you make me cry out in desperation. :((

It doesn't explain your spelling of Milošević

by Rea on

However, either way, it's vulgare.

Don't want to monopolize the blog. So long.

I am sorry Rustgoo

by Everybody Loves Somebody ... on

I just came out of the WC! I meant praise the Lord! Lord or load what's the diff!?

 

Rea , go to WC. I made it clear for you in there!


Rea

Milošević, you said ?!

by Rea on

Nothing to do with Iran, can not be compared !

What the hell are u talking about?

"...I would say hallelujah or praise the load!"

by rustgoo on

Praise the load, indeed!

Example: The collapse of the Slobodan Milošević Gov

by Everybody Loves Somebody ... on

in late 90's by persistent bombing of Serbia led by USA! Q.E.D (quod erat demonstrandum)!

And in the process, if let's say 5 to 10 million relatives, followers, sympathizers, supporters, protectors, thugs, and people on the pay roll of the mullahs get annihilated I would say hallelujah or praise the load!

Next please.

"...let's start bombing the Islamic Republic! "

by rustgoo on

With no intention of initiating an endless, and often useless wikilectual kind of argument, I'd like to know how it is possible to bomb a government, any government!


Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime

How refreshing it is

by Everybody Loves Somebody ... on

not to see a barrage of assassinating comments by the resident Commies and Hezbollahies on the authenticity of these video clips!? Or any refutation on the actual treatment of the inmates by the then authorities!?

After all the inside of the prisons in the Shah's era were 100 times better than the outside of the prisons during the Mullahs's era, at least according to this clip!? 

God bless America and let's start bombing the Islamic Republic!

Older style Pahlavi era

by Sargord Pirouz on

Older style Pahlavi era police uniforms. 

Interesting they didn't mention prostitution as one of the main offenses (there were a number of them in Tehran during the late 60's to 70's. 

This more closely resembles a collection center for social outcasts, than it does an actual prison for dangerous criminals.

Great video, thanks GS

by divaneh on

A real eye opener into a hidden corner of the pre-IRI society. Very professional, the shot with the old woman and the doll is so touching. The contrast between the two and the innocence in that old face is just indescribable.


obama

GS you did it again! What a wonderful find! Very touching!

by obama on

It seems that Iran was way ahead of the US when it comes to dealing with humans (not anymore). What a humanatarian way of dealing with the prisoners and children. They had the whole system set up rihgt then. West is still behind!

Incredible. Perhaps the only existing documentary on women's lives in prison in that period. And what a professional production. Could be used in comparing conditions today, especially for those charged with political crimes.
