This is the story of Anne, a young woman who decides to abort to finish her studies and escape the social constraints of a working-class family. France in 1963: a society that censures women's desires. And sex in general. This simple but cruel story follows the itinerary of a woman who decides to go against the law. Anne has only a little time before her. Her exams are just around the corner, and her baby bump is growing fast. (IMDb)

Join us for a post film conversation with Leah Ford and Kim Abbey following the 6:15 screening on Friday, May 13. 

Leah Ford is a Tacoma resident and mother of two with a special interest in addressing health disparities in the Black/African American community. Her professional background includes social justice, public health and issues related to children, youth and family health, equity and resilience. She is passionate about health equity issues in our community, access to care and the impact of racism on health. 

Kim Abbey has been a pro-choice activist for 50 years. She spent 24 years as a Nurse Practitioner in the for Seattle King County Health Department women's health clinic, where, among other things, she put in about 400 IUDs in her career. She's been a member of the League of Women Voters of WA for 5 years, where she has served on the volunteer legislative lobbyist team for 4 years, focusing on health care goals and cost containment. She lives in Olympia. 

The post film conversation will be facilitated by Davida Haygood, Interim Director of Education Programs at Pierce College.

With clear-eyed poise, the director Audrey Diwan captures the wrenching loneliness that can come with terminating an unwanted pregnancy -- and how judgment of such a choice can be even more crushing than the possibility of breaking an unjust law.
Shirley Li, The Atlantic
It's a serious, gripping and finally honourable film.
