Timely and terrific, HAPPENING, just the second film from director/writer Audrey Dwan, deservedly won the Venice Film Festival's most recent grand prize. Anne is a bright young student with a promising future ahead of her. When she becomes pregnant in 1960s France, where abortion is illegal, she resolves to act, no matter the risk. Courageous and honest, HAPPENING mirrors its heroine. "It's hard to think of a film more necessary in the current moment"—Little White Lies. "Deftly adapted by director Audrey Diwan from a novella, HAPPENING is a period piece, but it's acted and shot with a shivery immediacy"—The Daily Telegraph. "A triumph of immersive and emotion-filled storytelling." (Stuff.)

In French with English subtitles.
