IFC Films is proud to distribute the intimate new drama HAPPENING from writer/director Audrey Diwan (named one of Variety’s 10 Directors to Watch in 2022). Winner of the Golden Lion at the 2021 Venice Film Festival, the film screened in the Spotlight section of the 2022 Sundance Film Festival and was the opening night selection of the 2022 New Directors/New Films Festival.
Adapted from prize-winning author Annie Ernaux’s semi-autobiographical novel, HAPPENING follows Anne (Anamaria Vartolomei), a bright young student with a promising future ahead of her in France in 1963. 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.
