ReelQ: Circumstance (Iran)Tuesday, August 15, 2017 @ 7 p.m.
Join us for a screening of Circumstance (Iran) presented by ReelQ & Silk Screen.
Winner of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival Audience Award, Circumstance is a provocative coming-of-age story that cracks open the hidden, underground world of Iranian youth culture filled with sex, drugs and defiance. From filmmaker Maryam Keshavarz, this suspenseful tale of love and defiance unfolds as a wealthy family struggles to contain their teenage daughter’s growing sexual rebellion and her brother’s dangerous obsession.
