WORKSHOPS

In this workshop you will discuss the uprising of the women's liberation movement in the 60s and 70s in France.
The perfect pairing to the AF French Film Festival film, Annie Colère, an inspiring story based on true events of an ordinary woman who becomes emboldened by a cause far bigger than herself. Whilst a great addition, seeing the film is not necessary to attend this workshop.
Suitable for students of Upper Intermediate (B2) and Advanced (C1) levels.
