French director Audrey Diwan on the film “The Event” – Culture
Director Audrey Diwan had nobody on her screen. Then she won the Golden Lion for her film adaptation of Annie Ernaux’s novel about abortion. Meeting a woman who has achieved more than the perfect realization of a drastic narrative.

Filmmaking means creating emotions with images, and it is the highest art if you don’t even really notice what the images are doing to you. The narrowness that Audrey Diwan creates in “The Event”, the radicalism with which she shows what her protagonist Anne (Anamaria Vartolomei) is going through – that is special and impressive and virtuoso.
