Julia Haslett is the director of the documentary An Encounter with Simone Weil.  The film tells the story of French Philosopher and activist Simone Weil, who spent her short yet prolific life grappling with a single question: What response does seeing human suffering demand of us? Before making this film Julia had never hear of Simone Weil, but she was familiar with this question. She grew up watching her father struggle with depression, and when Julia was 17 he took his own life. The suicide left her acutely sensitive to people in pain, but it was many years later that Julia read these words that would lead her to make her latest film. This week I speak with Julia Haslett about the life of Simone Weil and how the philosopher inspired this personal documentary.
