SBAI has partnered with The Little Theater and WXXI again to present our annual Women's History Month Film Series. This year our films focus on "Weaving Women's Stories," and look closely at the individual experiences of women through many lenses and genres of film. Ticket pricing will be posted soon.
Violette Leduc, born out of wedlock at the beginning of the 20th century, encountered Simone de Beauvoir in the post-WWII years in St-Germain-des-Prés. An intense relationship began between the two women, which would last their whole lives, a relationship based on the quest for freedom through writing, for Violette, and, for Simone, on the conviction that she held the fate of an extraordinary writer in her hands.
