Simone De Beauvoir: Two Interviews // Game Changers

Published to instant success and controversy 70 years ago, Simone de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex helped change the course of feminist history. In a moment when women’s rights are being thrust into the spotlight, this rare documentary illuminates the historic role, elusive personality and world-changing thoughts of the French Second-Wave pioneer, charting her radical evolution through two interviews, filmed 16 years apart. From free love and existentialism in 1959 to The Second Sex and the conflict of abortion laws in 1975, Beauvoir speaks with clarity about feminism and its future—what would she make of #MeToo and #TimesUp?
