Circumstance

A wealthy Iranian family struggles to contain a teenager's growing sexual rebellion and her brother's dangerous obsession. Set in contemporary Iran in the unseen world of Iranian youth culture, filled with underground parties, sex, drugs and defiance, Circumstance is the story of two vivacious young girls - Atafeh and Shireen - discovering their burgeoning sexuality, struggling with their desires and the boundaries placed upon them by the world they were born into. Winner of the Sundance Audience Award, Circumstance is a thrilling expose of an Iranian culture rarely seen. Maryam Keshavarz's directorial debut has blazed a promising trail at film festivals the world over, challenging audience's pre-conceived perspectives of a society and how women can defy the rules imposed upon them, despite the dangers they face.

    En mycket välspelad och intressant film. Om svårigheterna att vara ung och inte följa normen i ett intolerant samhälle. Mycket sevärd
