She’s En Scene: Appropriate Behaviour
She’s En Scene present a special screening and discussion of Desiree Akhavan’s Appropriate Behaviour (2014).
For Shirin, being part of a perfect Persian family isn’t easy. Acceptance eludes her from all sides: her family doesn’t know she’s bisexual, and her ex-girlfriend, Maxine, can’t understand why she doesn’t tell them. Even the six-year-old boys in her moviemaking class are too ADD to focus on her for more than a second. Following a family announcement of her brother’s betrothal to a parentally approved Iranian prize catch, Shirin embarks on a private rebellion involving a series of pansexual escapades, while trying to decipher what went wrong with Maxine.
She’s En Scene is a women’s community cinema project screening films either written or directed by women to encourage discussion and film creation within communities. Their mission is to create spaces where women can watch, discuss and debate films in empowering and safe environments.
