An Encounter with Simone Weil

An Encounter with Simone Weil

What response does seeing human suffering demand of us? Filmmaker Julia Haslett seeks an answer in the life and work of controversial French thinker, activist, and mystic Simone Weil (1909-1943) –– a woman Albert Camus described as “the only great spirit of our time.”

"A profound and moving film on a woman who continues to speak to all of us." - Michael Moore
