SBAI has partnered with The Little Theater and WXXI again to present our annual Women's History Month Film Series. This year our films focus on "Weaving Women's Stories," and look closely at the individual experiences of women through many lenses and genres of film. Ticket pricing will be posted soon.
Appropriate Behavior synopsis: 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.
