[Luxus+ Magazine] The Venice Film Festival awards the Golden Lion to the French-Lebanese Audrey Diwan

The 78th edition of the Venice Film Festival awarded the Golden Lion to the French director Audrey Diwan, for her film “The Event”, based on the autobiographical story by the novelist Annie Ernaux.

 

Audrey Diwan, whose second film after “Mais vous êtes fous“, is also a journalist, novelist and screenwriter – she co-wrote the scripts for Bac Nord and La French.

 

The Golden Lion was awarded unanimously by the jury chaired by the South Korean director Bong Joon-Ho (Parasite).

 

The film tells the story of Anne, a carefree student in France in the early 1960s. At that time, clandestine abortion was punishable by prison for those who performed it as well as for those who participated in it. It was decriminalized in 1975.
