Recently winning the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival, Circumstance is the riveting debut feature - developed through Sundance Screenwriters Lab - from Iranian-American filmmaker Maryam Keshavarz.
Maryam Keshavarz will be in attendance to lead a post-film Q&A.
Atafeh and her brother, Mehran, have grown up in a home filled with music, art, and intellectual curiosity. While Atafeh dreams of fame and adventure, and she and her best friend, Shireen, explore Tehran's underground scene with youthful exuberance and determination to be themselves, her brother returns home from drug rehab, renounces his former decadent life, and replaces his once obsessive practice of classical music with more destructive pursuits.
