Once again, we are bringing you guys another Peccadillo related competition, this time in the guise of Iranian drama, Circumstance, directed by Maryam Keshavarz. The film had a successful run at the ICA, London, earlier this year with critics giving it four stars and describing it as ‘sensual’.
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.
We have two copies to give away, and all you need to do to bag yourself a copy is answer this very simple question.
