Watch Iranian drama, Circumstance, right here

 

Time for another Peccadillo picture to wet your appetites, this time is one of their biggest releases of the year – CIRCUMSTANCE, which is currently in the midst of a very successful run at London’s ICA.

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 (Nikohl Boosheri) and Shireen (Sarah Kazemy) – 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.
