A brief history of divorce
Formally or informally, human societies across place and time have made rules to bind and dissolve couples. The stakes of who can obtain a divorce, and why, have always been high. Divorce is a battlefield for some of society's most urgent issues, including the roles of church and state, individual rights, and women's rights. Rod Phillips digs into the complicated history of divorce. [Directed by Chintis Lundgreni Animatsioonistuudio, narrated by Addison Anderson, music by Draško Ivezić and Luigi Boccherini].
