At the Sarasota Film Festival, we had the opportunity to speak with Julia Haslett, director of the documentary An Encounter with Simone Weil. This film is the result of Julia’s six year journey exploring the life and philosophy of Simone Weil, a French philosopher and social activist. Julia approached the project in an unusual way – with an actress who immersed herself in the writings and life of the subject.
Her own alarm over the economic and political conditions of millions of world citizens was an inspiration for this work. The documentary asks critical questions about human suffering. See the trailer here:
