Join us for a screening of the acclaimed new film CIRCUMSTANCE, written and directed by NU alum Maryam Keshavarz, followed by a Q&A with the director, star, and composer!
Directed by NU alum Maryam Keshavarz, CIRCUMSTANCE is a suspenseful tale of love and family upended by obsession and suspicion. The film is also a provocative coming-of-age story that cracks open the hidden, underground world of Iranian youth culture, where a young woman’s most electrifying passions can become the most dangerous of secrets. Writer-director Maryam Keshavarz’s debut feature boldly takes filmgoers inside a modern Iran rarely witnessed by outsiders: an exhilarating, invisible realm of illicit nightclubs where young hipsters risk arrest, and their futures, as they experiment with sex, drugs and defiance, all while trying to evade the authorities. Winner of the Audience Award at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival (Fully subtitled).
