POUT film festival tour 2012

Winner of the 2011 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. It tells the story of two vivacious young girls, discovering their burgeoning sexuality, struggling with their desires and the boundaries placed upon them by the world they were born into.
