Visiting Lecturer (2016)

Kim Longinotto is a British documentary filmmaker, well known for making films that highlight the plight of female victims of oppression or discrimination.

Longinotto went on to Essex University to study English and European literature and later studied camera and directing at the National Film and Television School in Beaconsfield, England, where she now tutors.

While studying, she made a documentary about her boarding school that was shown at the London Film Festival, since when she has continued to be a prolific documentary filmmaker.

Longinotto is an observational filmmaker. Her unobtrusiveness, which is an important part of observational documentary, gives the women on camera a certain voice and presence that may not have emerged with another documentary genre. She has received a number of awards for her films over the years, including a BAFTA for her documentary Pink Saris.

Dreamcatcher (2015), Salma (2013), Pink Saris (2010), Rough Aunties (2008), Hold Me Tight, Let Me Go (2007), Sisters in Law (2005), The Day I Will Never Forget (2002), Runaway (2001), Gaea Girls (2000), Divorce Iranian Style (1998), Shinjuku Boys (1995), Dream Girls (1994), The Good Wife of Tokyo (1993), Hidden Faces (1990), Eat the Kimono (1990), Theatre Girls (1978), Pride of Place (1976).
