The recently formed Abortion Access Committee of Adirondack Voters for Change is proud to present the new feature film “Happening” at Lake Flower Landing, 421 Lake Flower Avenue, in Saranac Lake on Tuesday, August 2, at 7 PM. A French film that opened in the United States this past spring, “Happening” earned the Golden Lion award for best picture at the prestigious Venice Film Festival last year. It is based on a true story and takes place in the early 1960s when both abortion and contraception were illegal in France and anyone who got an abortion or helped anyone obtain an abortion faced imprisonment. Immediately following the screening will be a panel discussion by Tess Barker, CEO of Planned Parenthood of the North Country; Dr. Eve Burns and Dr. James Pate, with Dr. Dorothy Federman serving as moderator. In French with English subtitles, “Happening,” which is not rated and contains adult content, is for mature audiences only. Masks will be required at the event, and a $10 donation is requested. Reservations are strongly recommended. Please RSVP by email to email@example.com if you plan to attend as seating is very limited.
