Night Out!

PARTY TIME!

After the success of last December's Queermas event, we've decided to organise another night out. This time in Paceville.

The executive will be meeting at the Olde Keg at 22:30, this Saturday 25th February, and we will see where the night takes us from there. We'd love to get to know our members, so come and find us!
If you're joining later, feel free to contact Mina on 99801261 to find out where we are!

See you Saturday

Circumstance

Atafeh and Shireen, the protagonists in 'Circumstance' (2011)

On Monday (20.02.2012, KSU Common Room) at 11am we shall be screening the movie 'Circumstance' by independent Iranian-American director Maryam Keshavarz, the film has won numerous awards last year, notably the Audience Award winner at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.

The film will be in Persian, with English subtitles.

Atafeh and her brother, Mehran, have grown up privileged, 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. --
