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 exposé 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.
"Provocative and taboo-busting. Keshavarz is clearly willing to take risks on all fronts." - Los Angeles Times
“An amazingly accomplished and complex first feature from a filmmaker with something to say and the talent to say it.”- The Hollywood Reporter
