One thought on “About Us

  1. Guilford College will be holding the premiere screening in North Carolina of Julia Haslett’s “An Encounter with Simone Weil” on February 14, 2012.
    It tells the story of French philosopher, activist, and mystic, Simone Weil (1909-1943). Weil spent most of her too-short life advocating for the rights of the socially and politically disadvantaged. On her quest to understand Simone Weil, filmmaker Julia Haslett confronts profound questions of moral responsibility both within her own family and the larger world. From the battlefields of the Spanish Civil War to anti-war protests in Washington DC, from intimate exchanges between the filmmaker and her older brother to captivating interviews with people who knew Simone Weil, the film takes us on an unforgettable journey into the heart of what it means to be a compassionate human being.

    In July 2011, Michael Moore awarded the film his Special Founders Prize at the Traverse City Film Festival. The film was selected for the 2009 IFP Documentary Lab (NYC), and participated in IFP’s Spotlight on Documentaries (2008 & 2009). The film speaks to a broad range of communities, including college students and young people, peace & justice activists, people of faith, and mental health patients and caregivers.

    The event is being held at 7pm on Tuesday, February 14, 201 at the Bryan Jr. Auditorium. The screening will be followed by a discussion and conversation with the producer/director, Julia Haslett.

    Admission is free. Light refreshments will be served.
