New Film: An Encounter with Simone Weil

Filmmaker Julia Haslett has released a new film entitled: An Encounter with Simone Weil.

Here is the trailer

Here’s more on Simone Weil.

Simone Weil’s 1939 essay, The Iliad or the Poem of Force, is IMHO one of the greatest literary and spiritual essays ever written on the nature of violence.

Please see the critical edition of The Iliad of the Poem of Force, edited by James P. Holoka.

I’ll publish a review of Julia Haslett’s film if/when I have a chance to see it. (Here is the review.)
