Sanctuary cinema 

In a key scene in Circumstance (Saturday, Sept. 24, 11 a.m.), the Farsi-language centerpiece of this weekend's 12th LGBT-minded Lavender Film Festival, a teenage girl, wearing typical club gear and losing herself among the throbbing music and the Westernized Iranian youth culture, climbs the elevated DJ booth, closes her eyes and sinks into the obliging crowd below. It's a moment of pure bliss, all-too-predictably shut down seconds later when someone shouts, "Morality Police!"
