The film that criticizes the prohibition of abortion was named the best film.

Grand Prize Venice Film Festival – The Golden Lion received a provocative abortion film called The Event from director Audrey Diwan.

The events of the picture unfold in 1963, when abortion was prohibited by law in France. In the center of the plot is a student named Annie, who suddenly found out about her pregnancy.
