An Encounter with Simone Weil

While looking for a particular saying by Simone Weil I found here a link to this site.

It is about the film An Encounter with Simone Weil, premiered in 2010.
An Encounter with Simone Weil tells the story of French philosopher, activist, and mystic, Simone Weil (1909-1943) who 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 broader context of 21st-century America. Using Weil’s writings and teachings as a framework for her own experience, Haslett creates a moving portrait of an extraordinary young woman whose decision to act on her convictions proved that the quest to live a principled life is a journey we should all consider taking.


Attention is the rarest and the purest form of generosity
