The N. E. Mendelson Endowment Fund presents a North-American premiere

French original version with English subtitles, 105 minutes

An Irrepressible Woman

by Laurent Heynemann (France, 2019)

Léon Blum, the Jewish socialist politician and three-time French Prime Minister, stands at the heart of a new film based on a biography written by historian Dominique Missika (Je vous promets de revenir). Jeanne Levylier (Elsa Zylberstein) fell in love with Blum (Hippolyte Girardot) when she was only sixteen. Years later, when the Nazis occupy France and the Vichy regime is established, she renounces leaving the country with her husband in order to link her destiny to Léon Blum.

Introduction and post-film discussion moderated by Julien Bauer, Associate Professor at UQAM.

In collaboration with the Montreal Holocaust Museum.
