4PM: DOCUMENTARY - PROSTITUTION BEHIND THE VEIL (2004, 58 min) explores a side of Iran rarely seen or talked about. For over a year, director Nahid Persson filmed the everyday lives of two young female prostitutes in Iran as they eked out a living in a country where the profession is banned. The filmmaker often took great risks to follow Minna and Fariba as they sought out customers-men who would often marry them briefly, so as not to violate the laws of Islam by having extramarital sex. The two women have experienced the widespread mistreatment of women and the double standards that permeate modern Iranian society.
