Academy Award Nominee Imogen Sutton’s prize-winning documentary Daughters of de Beauvoir interweaves the life of feminist icon Simone de Beauvoir with those of the women she influenced – in particular through her seminal book The Second Sex. The film includes archive footage of de Beauvoir with Jean-Paul Sartre, as well as exclusive interviews with writers Kate Millett, Ann Oakley and Marge Piercy who all cite Simone de Beauvoir as a major force in their lives.

Followed by a Q&A with director Imogen Sutton, novelist Margaret Drabble, biographer Sarah LeFanu and film critic Kate Muir
