'Insightful, witty and profoundly moving' – Variety

Queer Palm - Cannes Film Festival 2016

Melbourne Premiere

Director Sébastien Lifshitz returns to one of the subjects of his powerful César Award-winning documentary The Invisibles to document the final moments of a remarkable, sexually-politicised life. Thérèse Clerc split with her husband after bringing four children into the world. She then took up with the women of France's burgeoning feminist groundswell. Invited back into her life as she very knowingly winds down, Lifshitz celebrates Thérèse through those she has touched and the change she has effected by fighting to live authentically. The Lives of Thérèse is a poignant, loving and surprisingly vital portrait of a woman at the vanguard of a passing queer generation.
