Bernard-Henri Lévy: How to Find the Will to See
Manage episode 341793514 series 3397300
Over the last three weeks, people around the world have watched in horror as the Russian invasion of Ukraine has claimed hundreds of innocent lives and put millions more in grave danger. The invasion has been a tragic reminder of the human costs of war, and why what happens to people anywhere should matter to all of us, everywhere.
In this episode, President Clinton is joined by French philosopher, filmmaker, and author Bernard-Henri Lévy to discuss his latest project, a documentary and accompanying book titled “The Will to See,” which shines a light on the suffering created by conflicts in places including Ukraine, Bosnia, Somalia, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan; explain how NGOs can play in critical role in rebuilding societies after “forgotten wars”; and share stories from his own extraordinary life. While this conversation was taped before the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the insights Lévy shares about the bravery of the Ukrainian people and the importance of their struggle for freedom and against oppression rings even truer today.
