Bernard-Henri Lévy at Columbia University

Join Bernard-Henri Lévy, celebrated philosopher, activist and filmmaker, for a lively discussion on the philosophy of activism, international engagement and why committing oneself to others is not a choice but a moral requirement. Bernard-Henri Lévy answered the call of famed French writer and statesman André Malraux to support Bangladesh in the fight for independence and against genocide. Since then Lévy has filmed and given a voice to millions from Bosnia, Darfur and Colombia to Sri Lanka, Burundi, the Nuba Mountains, Pakistan, Libya, Afghanistan and most recently, Kurdistan.
