CinemaSavannah presents the French film Happening


In light of the possible removal by the United States Supreme Court of Roe v. Wade which would remove the right to abortion, the winner of the Venice Film Festival of Audrey Diwan turns out to be the most timely film of the year.

Set in 1963 France, Anne is a bright young student with a bright future ahead of her. But when she becomes pregnant, she sees the opportunity to finish her studies and escape the constraints of her social environment disappear. With her final exams fast approaching and her belly growing, Anne resolves to act, even if she has to face shame and pain, even if she has to risk prison for it.
