Tanaz Eshaghian, Love Crimes of Kabul



Iranian born Tanaz Eshaghian came to the U.S. at the age of six and has grown up to be a documentarian. Her latest work, spotlighted in the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s annual Human Rights Watch Festival for 2011, is Love Crimes of Kabul. The film is an eye-opening profile of three inmates jailed for "moral crimes" at Afghanistan’s Badum Bagh women’s prison -- as well as their jailers, lovers, and others. Love Crimes is unsettling and explosive; it premieres on HBO July 11, 2011.
