    Circumstance - film screening

    Ontario - Ottawa Friday - November 18, 2011     07:15 PM



    Maryam Keshavarz / USA, Lebanon, Iran, France / 105 min
    Atafeh and Shireen are best friends who are experimenting with their burgeoning sexuality. Atafeh, who has grown up in a home filled with art, music and intellectual curiosity, dreams of fame and adventure. Shireen, who lives with her conservative uncle, dreams of Atafeh's progressive world. The girls lead a double-life, allowing them greater social and sexual freedoms.

    A suspenseful tale of love and family upended by obsession and suspicion, Circumstance is also a provocative coming-of-age story that uncovers the hidden underground world of Iranian youth culture, where a young woman's most electrifying passions can become the most dangerous of secrets.

    Winner of the US Dramatic Audience Award, 2011 Sundance Film Festival
