This evening Maryam Keshavarz' Sundance award winning film will close the New Directors/New Film series in NYC. I spoke with Maryam this week and the full interview will be available when the film opens this summer, but here is a piece in honor of the film's NY premiere. Circumstance will be making its way around the film festival circuit this spring and if it comes to your neighborhood I highly recommend it. The film tells the story of two young women living in Iran trying to live as normal a life as possible under a repressive regime while exploring their feelings for each other.

If you are in NYC you can still buy tickets here.
