Imogen Sutton’s prize-winning documentary (BBC/Arts Council 1989) interweaves Simone de Beauvoir’s life with those of the women she influenced through her life and work – in particular through The Second Sex. As well as archive footage of de Beauvoir with Jean-Paul Sartre, the film includes exclusive interviews with writers Kate Millett and Marge Piercy. After the screening Ann Oakley and Angie Pegg, who both contributed to the documentary, join Imogen Sutton and broadcaster Harriett Gilbert for a panel to discuss what Simone de Beauvoir’s writing means today.
