“Timely and urgent, ‘Happening’ is a film that speaks to today’s abortion debate” – Justin Chang, NPR
Set in 1963 France, in a society when abortion was still illegal and women’s desires are censured, Anne is a bright young student with a promising future ahead of her. But when she falls pregnant, she sees the opportunity to finish her studies and escape the constraints of her working-class background disappearing. This simple but cruel story follows the itinerary of a woman who decides to go against the law, facing social ostracization and even prison for taking back her body. A timely tale, Happening is compassionate, brutally honest, and serves as both a transfixing drama and an urgent reminder of the need to protect women’s reproductive rights.
