LVMH is a major partner of the film WOMAN, which has been re-released in France now that movie theaters have re-opened across the country since June 22. WOMAN’s premier run in theaters was unexpectedly cut short on March 15 after the French government introduced measures to slow the spread of COVID-19. The movie’s second release will bring its universal message to a broader audience.
The film WOMAN, directed by Anastasia Mikova and Yann Arthus-Bertrand, was initially released on March 4, 2020, but did not complete its scheduled run after France went into lockdown. The movie is now screening extensively again across France following the re-opening of cinemas around the country on June 22 – a new burst of energy for this inspirational feature film.
WOMAN gives voice to ordinary women’s unique stories through a series of poignant and sincere first-person accounts from women all over the world. Despite the diversity of the women interviewed, universal themes run through the film as the position of women is explored internationally. Beyond the women’s cultural, generational and socio-economic differences, all are confronted with the same life events and talk with sincerity and sensitivity about very personal subjects, including femininity, motherhood and their place in society.
These subjects are especially important for LVMH because the Group’s workforce is 73% women. Through its support for the film, the Group has underlined its commitment to gender equality and the promotion of diversity at every level of its organization and within the broader community. LVMH believes that the role of women in society is also directly linked to the recognition they receive in their professional lives. The Group strives daily to provide women with a motivating work environment where they can thrive.
All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to WOMAN(s) (Women On Media And News – School), an NGO that trains women and girls in media professions around the world.
