Separated from her husband, Aurore also loses her job and if that isn’t enough she learns that she will soon be a grandmother. She suddenly realizes that society is pushing her gently onto a sideline, and Aurore is cast adrift on a mini-odyssey, reassessing age, race, social status and the importance of sex.

“Blandine Lenoir’s lovely, intricate film tackles a subject that rarely gets addressed in art” – Donald Clarke, Irish Times

Were you born a rebel? If so, you’re in good company.

The film will be preceded by a newly-commissioned short film, Vote 100: Born a Rebel – made up of wonderful  footage from the Yorkshire, North East and North West Film Archives – we were inspired by the words of Mrs Elizabeth Dean who, still a proud suffragette at 100 years old, told the camera:

“Between you and I, I think I must have been born a rebel!”

Venue – St Marys
