Pregnant and in crisis, Suzanne is helped by her old friend Pauline to obtain an illegal abortion, beginning a years-long bond that endures through the trials of love, work, and parenthood. Political but never preachy, One Sings, the Other Doesn’t is a warm celebration of friendship, feminism, and solidarity. Did we mention it’s (sort of) a musical?
One Sings, the Other Doesn’t will be preceded by the short “The Pleasure of Love in Iran” (6 min).
Shown in conjunction with the film course The Immortal Cinema of Agnès Varda, this screening will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Lisa DeNight.
