UNC Humanities Spotlight on Scholars: Simone Weil: Encounters with the Attention Ethic with Julia Haslett

When: Tue., Sept. 22, 4:30-6 p.m. 2015

What response does seeing human suffering demand of us? This question is at the center of filmmaker Julia Haslett’s most recent film, An Encounter with Simone Weil, a personal essay documentary inspired by the French thinker and activist Simone Weil (1909-1943). Haslett will discuss the themes central to her documentary work: attention, empathy, and the complex dynamics of bearing witness.
