Tribute to Delphine Seryrig – Actress, Director and Activist

From being a film icon to supporting emerging women directors, Delphine Seyrig (1932-1990) increasingly got involved in the women’s rights and social struggles of her times, both in France and internationally, especially via the making of activist videos with her collective ‘Les Insoumuses’ (Defiant Muses) and through co-founding the Simone de Beauvoir Audiovisual Centre in Paris.

Our selection of films, videos and talks reflects the current importance of Seyrig, celebrated in two major exhibitions in France and in Spain. This celebration of Seyrig the actor, director and activist, is ever more relevant within the current context of the #metoo movement and the idea that the personal is political.
