Happening

Adapted from Annie Ernaux’s autobiographical novel, HAPPENING recounts the journey of a young woman’s physical and emotional battle to access illegal abortion in a desperate race against the clock. A powerful and gripping drama set in a society that condemned female desire and sexual liberty.
France, 1963. 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 social background disappearing. With her final exams fast approaching and her belly growing, Anne resolves to act, even if she has to confront shame and pain, even if she must risk prison to do so…

Media reception

Entertainment Weekly
"If Happening often feels like a punch to the solar plexus, that's exactly what it should be."
Washington Post
"A sobering reminder that the consequences of limiting access to safe medical care aren’t just theoretical but existential."
