Set in contemporary Iran in the unseen world of Iranian youth culture, and filled with underground parties, sex, drugs and defiance, Circumstance is the story of two vivacious young girls – Atafeh and Shireen – discovering their burgeoning sexuality whilst struggling with the boundaries placed upon them by the world they were born into.
Winner of the Sundance Audience Award, Circumstance is a thrilling exposé of an Iranian culture that is rarely seen. Maryam Keshavarz’s directorial debut is an expressive film that challenges pre-conceived ideas about Iranian society and questions what it means to come of age in a world that is sometimes hostile to who you are becoming.
