Agnes Varda’s feminist landmark One Sings, The Other Doesn’t, is a powerful story of friendship set against the backdrop of the Women’s Liberation movement.

In the early 1960s, teenager Pauline (Valérie Mairesse) helps Suzanne (Thérèse Liotard), a mother of two, obtain an illegal abortion. Their close bond continues over the next decade as the two women choose different paths and experience lives touched by personal tragedy and political awakening. One friendship warmly illuminates a portrait of a generation in a film that feels as relevant today as it did upon its release 46 years ago.

Followed by a Q&A discussion with Anahit Behrooz, author of BFFs: The Radical Potential of Female Friendship
