Simone Weil’s 103rd Birthday and a Coming Theatrical Film Premiere

Julia Haslett, producer of the award-winning film, An Encounter with Simone Weil, which I reviewed at length in July, 2011, has written to let S&SJ’s readers know that she’s celebrating Simone Weil‘s 103rd birthday on February 3, 2012 by kicking off promotions and fundraising for her film’s March 23, 2012 theatrical premiere at New York City’s Quad Cinema. Here’s the trailer for the film, An Encounter with Simone Weil.

Julia Haslett writes of Simone Weil:

“In a time of such political and religious polarization, she’s *one of those rare public figures who appeals to people from all ends of the political spectrum, a diversity of religious faiths, and a wide range of nationalities.*

Agreed!
