Sundance - The Glass House

I attended today's Sundance screening of The Glass House. This documentary follows victimized teenage females in Tehran, Iran for 18 months. The girls have found sanctuary in a center where they have access to social and practical skills to help them navigate as self-sufficent women in a culture that doesn't always support such endeavors.

In a society which forbids alcohol I was surprised to see the role that illicit drugs played in the lives of some of the girls. Below is the 2 minute trailer for The Glass House. There are four more screening at Sundance so try to check this movie out. It's part of the World Documentary competition.
