Movie Details

Happening (SGIFF)

Based on the novel of the same name by Annie Ernaux, the film is set during the height of Gaullist France in the `60s, when reproductive rights are still the dictates of conservative laws. The 23-year-old bright-eyed Anne is on the cusp of achieving her dreams of academia. But aspirations turn quickly into anxiety for the future when she discovers her pregnancy. Denied an abortion through official channels, Anne battles with pervasive social stigmatisation- from the school dormitory to the medical halls - as she grows increasingly desperate by the week. As her final exams approach and her social life begins to fade, Anne`s pregnancy progresses, forcing her to confront the shame and pain of an abortion, even if she must risk prison to do so.
