Lantana

Lantana: a noxious and troublesome weed with dense and spiky undergrowth, sometimes cultivated for its colorful, aromatic flowers (film website). Like the plant, this film is a thicket: lovely and sweet smelling on its surface, dense and thorny beneath. In Lantana, a quartet of married couples from different strata of urban Australian life--wealthy Valerie and John, the middle-class Zats, working-class Jane and her estranged husband Pete, and struggling, just barely working-class Nik and Paula--are connected by psychiatrist Valerie, whose disappearance is the event around which these couples lives begin to revolve.

City Walls -My Own Private Tehran

Loading...
In this disarmingly intimate and revealing film three generations of women in an Iranian family describe their struggles for survival within marriages founded on Iranian traditions. The filmmaker's grandmother was married at 13 to a ne'er-do-well who spent what little money there was on opium and drinking. She became a maid and a wet nurse in order to earn enough to feed her six daughters. Both the filmmaker's mother and then the filmmaker herself entered difficult marriages, each of which ended in divorce. The third generation however had one advantage. The Revolution allowed girls to get a university education--even girls from poor families. So the filmmaker, Sonia, was able to study in Iran and abroad in Switzerland.

Couples Arguing

Loading...
Arguments between couples are an important aspect of interpersonal relationships. They allow the airing of divergent views so that a compromise becomes possible and violence is avoided. Here is the first documentary to investigate real couples in actual arguments. To capture this with absolute spontaneity, the filmmakers had the couples call them whenever they were about to be embroiled in an argument. They would then go into separate rooms waiting for the documentary crew to arrive, when they would resume their argument. Five couples are shown. They argue about issues such as money, sex, alcohol and children. Differences of opinions are vented humorously, passionately and sometimes venomously. One sees that despite seemingly irresolvable conflicts, couples have positive feelings tow [...]

In Tunisia, a home for the elderly is quite unusual since most older people are automatically cared for by their families.

Along with a tour of a home for the elderly in Tunis, the program canvasses the views of younger people who are now responsible for the well-being of parents or grandparents.
