In response to the breaking news about #RoeVWade in the US, we’re hosting a screening of Happening with all proceeds donated to the Abortion Support Network.
Happening shows the realities of those who are unable to make a free choice about their own reproductive health. We stand in solidarity with those fighting for access to abortion care, wherever they might be.
France, 1963, Anne (Anamaria Vartolomei) 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 pregnancy progressing, Anne resolves to act, even if she has to confront shame and pain, even if she must risk prison to do so.
